Automatic monitor disk-space


I am trying to find a shell script to monitor diskspace of all the directories in the server. When the script

encounteres a disk which above the treashold, I want an email


My system runs on AIX.

Is there anybody around who can help me with such a script?

Send me "df -k" output.

I can whip up a top-level script to monitor your disk space and send an email based on a criteria.

you can just follow the one suggested by ghostdog74 and my point here is to use "df -kp" which will let the script use the POSIX output format so that, awk will always take the right field from df o/p.
Otherwise in conditions like when you have lengthy devive names usage of "df -k | awk..... would pickup the wrong feild and so may raise false alarms on your disk space!!
