[ask]elimination with diskspace

dear all,

i want elimination file with disk space for example:
[itu@tux ~]$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                       62G   19G   41G  31% /
/dev/sda1              99M   13M   82M  13% /boot
tmpfs                1014M     0 1014M   0% /dev/shm

Just execute the below command and check the output. If you are satisfied with output, then remove the highlighted (red color) echo from the nawk


Try this...

df-h | nawk ' $NF~/\/$/ { size=int(substr($2,length($2)-2,length($2)-1)); if( size > 20) {print "echo echo rm /tmp/*.txt"} else {print "echo echo Disk usage is under 20"}}' | sh

df -h /  | tail -n1 | 
awk '+$3 > 20 {system("echo rm")}'
