1 adu creates a database containing disk usage statistics of a given
2 directory. It allows to query that database to quickly retrieve usage
3 patterns of subdirectories containing files owned by a given user.
4
5 Four different output modes are available: global list, global summary,
6 user list and user summary. The format of the output may be customized
7 via format strings.
8
9 There's an interactive mode which allows to quickly launch many queries
10 on the same database using different modes and different output files.
11
12 By default, adu uses the user-summary output format which looks like
13 this:
14
15 User summary
16 root 0 605 12K 267m
17 mysql 103 8 144 81m
18 postgres 113 19 506 31m
19 man 6 37 87 2m
20 syslog 101 1 54 1m
21 ...
22
23 The user-list mode prints the largest directories of one or more users:
24
25 uid 0 (root):
26 55m 8 /var/cache/apt/apt-file/
27 43m 35 /var/lib/apt/lists/
28 27m 6K /var/lib/dpkg/info/
29 25m 4 /var/cache/apt/
