Automatic free disk space monitoring on Linux server
Wed, 21 Sep 2011 07:09:28 +0000

The simplest way to monitor free disk space on Linux serwer, just place it in crontab:

0 8 * * *     df -h | awk '/^\// && $5 > 95 { print "missing space", $0 }'

and ensure e-mail to this user is forwarded to you then you will see e-mail when occupied space is higher than 95% on any disk.

Pretty simple.
