The Question is:
How do I list disk space usage by disk, by user with a total for each
directory. In UNIX I would use du -ak|sort -nr|more. I'm new to VMS and
need this unix command translated,
The Answer is :
Various DIRECTORY commands appear to be the rough equivilent of the
UNIX du command. /[NO]HEADER /SIZE and /TOTAL are some of the more
common qualifiers involved in this area.
The disk quota mechanism is also available, and can be used to track
disk usage without enforcing limits -- this capability in addition to
its more obvious use in enforcing disk usage limits. (To use the disk
quota mechanism to track usage, set the quota limit for each user to
a value equal to or larger than the capacity of the disk volume.)
The OpenVMS Freeware DFU tool can also be used to generate reports on
disk usage, as can the OpenVMS ANALYZE/DISK_STRUCTURE/USAGE command.
The OpenVMS Wizard is not a particularly good resource for translating
commands from other systems. As unfamilar as the OpenVMS commands might
look to you, the foreign commands can look equally unfamiliar to the
OpenVMS Wizard. In questions such as this, details on exactly what
information you want or need to see in the report would be far more
useful to the OpenVMS Wizard.
The "|sort -nr|more" portion of the command has little to do with the
core data-related portion of the question, as this latter portion
controls the particular presentation of the data.
