Folder Quota Checker

This program returns the quota of 1st level sub folders in a directory using the du command (available on all *nix platforms).

Usage

If no start directory is given all folders in the current one will be checked by default:

$qcheck ./folder-0 4 ./folder-1 920 ... ./folder-9 8248 . 41264  Choose folders Sometimes it is required to get the quota of a defined subset of folders. It is possible to give foldernames as arguments: $ qcheck folder-1 folder-2
./folder-1   920
./folder-2   120


This method only make sense for a cupple of folders. A greater folderlist can be given by a textfile. The foldernames shoud be written line by line in the textfile. To use it give the option -t and than the filename like this:

$qcheck -t folder_set.txt  If the folder dosent exist a "DoesentExistException" will show you that for every missing Folder. Output By default the result is written to the standard output in bit-format. Each folder-quota will be presented in one line by default: $ qcheck
./folder-0   4
./folder-1   920
...
./folder-9   8248
.            41264


The output can also converted to a human readable form with the -r option:

\$ qcheck -r
./folder-0 4,0K
./folder-1 920K
...
./folder-9 8,1M
.           41M


file-output

If the fileoutput is enabled with the option -f the output is written to a csv-file. If no parameter for the file name is given the name of the file is "output.csv". The file will be created if it does not exists.

If the file already exists, the new content will be saved as a new column in the document. The name of the column contains the date like YYMMDD:

 folders 111205 120305 folder-1 0K 128K folder-2 32M 132M folder-3 980M 1.124G

If the column already exists the quotachecker will return a note that you have to set the -o parameter if you whant to overwrite the column and exit. If the -o option is set quotachecker will overwrite the column by if it exist.
