Df -k command shows duplicate information in Solaris machine, How to get the exact disk space

While getting the total disk space in solaris machine using df -k command, i am getting the same disk info for every user available in that system.

Is there any way to remove it.

rpool                  573898752          39   554417618     1%    /rpool
/export/home/test      558787946     4370328   554417618     1%    /home/test

Here user spaces of soluser1,2,3,5 were located under /export. It will give wrong result if i sum up all those values available under Available field.
Whereas in linux, i can get the correct space using the same command. How to get the correct disk space in solaris, please advice.

Those are ZFS filesystems. All the user directories are sharing free space that is available on the "rpool" zpool. You can limit the space that is available for particular filesystem (user) by setting ZFS properties "quota" and "reservation". You can read more about it here: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19253-01/...zvb/index.html

I'm also a big fan of df -h for displaying the results in human readable format.

Use zpool status to get df like information for ZFS pools.
