could be something like this:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/ksh
ALARM=75
df -k | awk '!/capacity/ {print $5 $6}' | while read CAP
do
         [[ ${CAP%\%*} -ge $ALARM ]] && print "Warning: ${CAP%\%*} % of ${CAP#*%} on `uname -n` in use!" | mailx -s "warning" pressy@unix.com
done

see "man crontab" for scheduling the job....

regards PRESSY
