Displaying Filesystem/Directory Using df

I'm unsure about the topic title, but this is what I want to do.

I have a directory, named /opt/extra and and I want it to be displayed when I issue df command. Just by using df only, not df /opt/extra.

OS: Solaris 10

Current df output

Code:
root@jebat10 # df -k
Filesystem            kbytes    used   avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d0       57931765 55747342 1605106    98%    /
/devices                   0       0       0     0%    /devices
ctfs                       0       0       0     0%    /system/contract
proc                       0       0       0     0%    /proc
mnttab                     0       0       0     0%    /etc/mnttab
swap                 20266632    1632 20265000     1%    /etc/svc/volatile
objfs                      0       0       0     0%    /system/object
fd                         0       0       0     0%    /dev/fd
/dev/md/dsk/d3       4133598 1026636 3065627    26%    /var
swap                 20265120     120 20265000     1%    /tmp
swap                 20265088      88 20265000     1%    /var/run

Result that I want

Code:
root@jebat10 # df -k
Filesystem            kbytes    used   avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d0       57931765 55747342 1605106    98%    /
?                    xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx xx% /opt/extra
/devices                   0       0       0     0%    /devices
ctfs                       0       0       0     0%    /system/contract
proc                       0       0       0     0%    /proc
mnttab                     0       0       0     0%    /etc/mnttab
swap                 20266632    1632 20265000     1%    /etc/svc/volatile
objfs                      0       0       0     0%    /system/object
fd                         0       0       0     0%    /dev/fd
/dev/md/dsk/d3       4133598 1026636 3065627    26%    /var
swap                 20265120     120 20265000     1%    /tmp
swap                 20265088      88 20265000     1%    /var/run

if /opt/extra is anormal directory it can't be displayed using df
only mounted file systems wil be displayed
if you made a file system on that directory
ake sure it's mounted properly

If you want to see the space utlization for the /opt/extra directory, do a "du" instead.
Only FS are displayed with df.

Ah, I see. So I have to create another logical volume specific for /opt/extra - am I right? So there is no other way. Smilie

Thanks guys.
