Top Forums UNIX for Advanced & Expert Users Conversion between different block size filesystems Post 39216 by pankschawla on Monday 11th of August 2003 07:16:00 AM
i think it might be due to the space occupied by inodes etc... since file sizes are exactly the same. only the problem is with Directories.
still i dont know the actual reason for the difference in file sizes.

i would appreciate an early response from any member.

thanx in advance.

pydf - report colourised filesystem disk space usage SYNOPSIS
pydf [options] [file] DESCRIPTION
pydf is a python script that displays the amount of disk space available on the mounted filesystems, using different colours for different types of filesystems. Output format is completely customizable. If an optional file argument is given, pydf displays just information about filesystem containing the file(s), otherwise it displays information about all mounted filesystems. OPTIONS
--help Show summary of options. -v, --version Show version of program. -a, --all include filesystems having 0 blocks -h, --human-readable print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 133K 2341M 2448G) -H, --si likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024 --block-size=SIZE use SIZE-byte blocks -k, --kilobytes like --block-size=1024 -i, --inodes show information about inodes instead of blocks -l, --local limit listing to local filesystems -m, --megabytes like --block-size=1048576 -g, --gigabytes like --block-size=1073741824 --blocks use filesystem native block size --bw do not use colours --mounts=FILE file to get mount information from. On normal linux system, only /etc/mtab or /proc/mounts make sense. Use /proc/mounts when /etc/mtab is corrupted or inaccessible (the output looks a bit weird in this case though) -B, --show-binds Show also mount --bind mounted filesystems. BUGS
When running with python3, mountpoints with out-of-locale non ASCII names will not be displayed (due to inability of os.statvfs to use bytes instead of strings). FILES
