Power AIX 4.3 storage usage report


i'm new to this company and i'm using old AIX 4.3 with DAS and SSA storage. What is the best way to query a report for disk capacity, usage, free, etc.

I know in AIX 5 there's a command for "du -g /" or "du -m /" to report the total usage but I'm not using AIX5. In AIX 4.3 I can use "df -t" so that it will give report of the total "512-bolcks/used/free/%use". How I can compute the "total 512-blocks" so that I can give to my boss in mega byte or giga byte? Is the calculation the same with "used" and "free" on "512-blocks"?

"df -k" works in kilobytes which may be easier to translate

so the total "1024-blocks" if 50,000,000 is a total of 50G. is that correct?

That looks right to me.

Sorry to interrupt your excitation, but a "report on storage usage" is NOT achieved by the command df, which only gives you the used filesystem space.

Use the commands lsvg and lspv (see "man lsvg" and "man lspv") instead to get a report about how much disks are allocated to a specific volume group, how of that space is available for extending/creating filesystems, and so on.
