Readable df -h output in HP-UX

After my first encounter with a HP-UX system recently, I soon discovered that annoyingly, neither the df -h or df -g commands work in HP-UX! There are other commands such as df -PK or bdf I’ve found that can provide you with a more readable view of the filesystems, but after a bit of faffing around, I put this together instead:

df -Pk | awk '{ 
 if ( NR == 1 ) { next } 
 if ( NF == 6 ) { print } 
 if ( NF == 5 ) { next } 
 if ( NF == 1 ) { 
 getline record; 
 $0 = $0 record 
 print $0 
 } 
 }' | awk '
BEGIN {print "Filesystem                                    Mount Point                 Total GB   Avail GB    Used GB  Used"
       print "--------------------------------------------- ------------------------- ---------- ---------- ---------- -----"}
END {print ""}
/dev/ || /^[0-9a-zA-Z.]*:\// {
printf ("%-45.45s %-25s %10.2f %10.2f %10.2f %4.0f%\n",$1,$6,$2/1024/1024,$4/1024/1024,$3/1024/1024,$5)
}'

…which gives you something like this…

Filesystem                Mount Point                 Total GB   Avail GB    Used GB  Used
------------------------- ------------------------- ---------- ---------- ---------- -----
/dev/test01/db1           /u19                           94.47      82.91      11.57   13%
/dev/test02/log1          /u18                           18.85      17.20       1.66    9%
/dev/oemsg04/orasw        /u07                           74.06      23.97      50.10   68%
/dev/oemsg04/db1          /u08                           28.93      15.99      12.95   45%
/dev/vg00/lvol5           /home                           1.99       1.16       0.83   42%
/dev/vg00/lvol6           /opt                            9.96       4.74       5.22   53%

mdfmegs comes over highly recommended alternative in the HP community, but as a quicker, on-the-fly fix, I’ve been using the above!

UPDATE: Script updated to account for filesystem paths being line wrapped!

Hope this helps…

    • To include NFS into output, use below code:

      BEGIN {print "Filesystem Mount Point Total GB Avail GB Used GB Used"
      print "----------------------------------- ------------------------- ---------- ---------- ---------- -----"}
      END {print ""}
      /dev/ || /^[0-9a-zA-Z.]*:\// {
      printf ("%-35.35s %-25s %10.2f %10.2f %10.2f %4.0f%\n",$1,$6,$2/1024/1024,$4/1024/1024,$3/1024/1024,$5)
      }
