bdfmegs - Feb2014 version

[ Edited ]

bdfmegs is a reformatter script for bdf along with several options that are not in bdf itself.

The version has added:

 

-- stdin is available (-D) so that a copy/paste from a listing can be formatted. It will handle bdf -i (inodes) by ignoring them.

-- READ-ONLY filesystems are tagged with a "*"

-- Default sort is column 1 (source). Use -c # to sort on other columns

-- The divisor is 1024 but can be changed to 1000 with -d (reported with -v option)

-- Handles VxVM volumes

-- Will display terabytes and petabytes with useful scaling

 

You can use it as an enhanced bdf. Here are the options:

 

Usage:  bdfmegs [ -cDdeghlNPpqstuVv ] [ <file(s) or dir(s)> ]
  where:
    -c # = Sort on column #, default=1
    -D = use bdf from stdin pipe (display another bdf)
         Cannot be used with -l, -t or -v
    -d = Toggle divisor (1000 or 1024, current=1024)
    -e = enhancement for percentage and errors
         d=dim h=halfbright i=inverse u=underline b=blink
    -g = show gigabytes, otherwise megabytes
    -h = Usage
    -l = local (no NFS)
    -M   <mountpoints> = skip (grep -v) mountpoints
    -N   <VGnames> = skip one or more volume groups
         Repeat -N or use commas: -N vg10,vg24
    -p   ## = highlight % -ge ##
    -P   ## = show only % -ge ##
    -q = suppress header, line and no char enhancements
    -s = summarize total, used and available
    -t   <fs> = filesystem type, one of:
         hfs nfs cdfs autofs cachefs ffs lofs nfs3 procfs vxfs cifs pipefs
    -u = usage
    -v = verbose (FStype, FSversion, largefiles)
         (VG version needs read permission for devicefile)
    -V   <VGname> = select one or more volume groups
         Repeat -V or use commas: -V vg00,vg01

File(s) or dirpath(s) may be specified to reduce the output of bdfmegs:

       bdfmegs -vg /usr/contrib/bin . .. /var/tmp

If bdfmegs is run as bdfgigs (ie, a link), then -g is default.
                                         (bdfmegs ver 6.4_Feb2014)

 

Some examples:

 bdfmegs never splits the line. It adjusts the layout to fit the largest source device.

-v gives additional information:

* means filesystem is mounted read-only

You can select (-Vvg_name) (or deselect with -Nvg_name) volume groups.

You can also use -s for a sum total of the displayed mountpoints.

 

File-System      Mbytes    Used   Avail %Used Mounted on
/dev/vg00/lvol1    1792     721    1062   40% /stand

-- sum totals -    30.4g   23.9g   6626   --- sum totals ---

You can find any mountpoints that are more than a given percentage full (-P 70):

 

File-System      Mbytes    Used   Avail %Used Mounted on
/dev/vg00/lvol4     512     382     129   75% /tmp

/dev/vg00/lvol8    8704    6567    2119   76% /var

 And you can remove the headers and trailers for scripts with -q (this was bdfmegs -lq -c3):

 

memfs                        256       0     256    0% /memfs

Be sure to transfer the file in ASCII mode when using ftp.
