In this post, i will share the simple command to check the Hard Disk size and usage on CentOS 6.2. This command is a basic command for linux operating system.

To view and list of the usage of each partition in the server :

    [root@centos62 ~]# df -h
    Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mapper/vg_centos62-lv_root
                           13G  1.8G   10G  15% /
    tmpfs                 504M     0  504M   0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda1             485M   48M  412M  11% /boot
    

df command will displays the total, used, and available free space on all currently mounted filesystems.

To list the size of a specific directory, run the following command :

    [root@centos62 ~]# du -sh /root
    2.6M    /root
    

du command reports disk usage. It will shows the disk space used by the files and directories in a directory. The -h option makes the output easier to read by user.
