# Folder Quota Checker

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

## Usage

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

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


This method only make sense for a couple of directories. A greater folder list can be given by a text file. The folder names should? be written line by line in the text file. To use it give the option -t and than the filename like this:

$qcheck -t folder_set.txt  If the folder doesn't 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 directory-quota will be presented in one line: $ qcheck
./directory-0   4
./directory-1   920
...
./directory-9   8248
.            41264


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

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


### file-output

If the file output is enabled with the option -f FILENAME the output will be written to a csv-file. 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 YY-MM:

 directorys;2011-12;2012-03 directory-1;0K;128K directory-2;32M;132M directory-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 want to overwrite the column and exit. If the -o option is set quotachecker will overwrite the column by if it exist.

## Requirements

If the installed python is at least 2.7 you have all what you need and there is nothing to install.

If the installed python is 2.6 you need to install argparse witch is already done if you installed the quotachecker with pip.

## Testing

If something doesn't work as described please first run the tests:

python runtests.py


ad send me me the output if it fails.
