Find Large Files
Every time a filesystem is running out of space and I need to find something to delete, I end up googling the syntax for the find command to make sure it stays off NFS and doesn’t cross mountpoints. Finally, I decided to write this basic script.
Here’s the script. And a few examples on how to use it:
# 20 largest files in /opt/tomcat large-files /opt/tomcat 20 # 12 largest files in each local filesystem large-files 12 # 10 largest files in each local filesystem large-files
DATE Current date/time HOST Short hostname KB File size in KB MTIME File modification time UID:GID User/Group RWX Permissions HL Number of hardlinks PATH File path/name
