Is there a better/more reliable command than df?

I found out about df, is there a better/more reliable command that comes with Sun os 5.x? I added the total space allotted per mount.

dr problem

It turns out that not all the servers have dr, is it possible to transfer the dr file to the other servers or would that create a problem?
# 4  
df is fine.

Yes, you can transfer binary files between the same platform architecture. In the utility has dynamicly loadable modules, then you will have to transfer those as well.

Just FTP the file to the other server, set the proper execute permissions and try it.
