Subject description: A Java-powered, cross-platform, graphical disk-usage analysis utility
 

Evening, all.

I was browsing through MakeUseOf.com earlier this evening (one of my favourite sites for tech 'stuff'), and came across this article on disk-usage analysis tools for Linux:-

http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-analyze-your-disk-usage-pattern-in-linux/

I know there's already loads of different utilities out there.....mostly command line. I don't mind using the command-line, but I know there are those (like myself!) who find a graphical representation of this kind of thing easier to 'take in'.

One of the tools presented in the article was this one, called JDiskReport, from an outfit called JGoodies, who specialise in Java stuff:-

http://www.jgoodies.com/freeware/jdiskreport/

Now, I certainly wouldn't recommend you use rerwin's excellent GetJava utility just for this one, small app.....but if you already have Java/IcedTea installed for some other purpose, then this is an excellent way to take advantage of it. Despite its diminutive size (less than 1MB), I've packaged it up as an SFS, complete with Menu entry (to be found under Menu->Filesystem). It can therefore be loaded/unloaded as & when you want it.

It's rather similar to Baobab in concept; you can change representations from pie-chart to 'radial-rings' to bar, amongst other stuff, and analyze pretty much every part of your file-system.....including the kitchen sink! (Probably... Laughing ). It's quite comprehensive for this kind of thing.





Apparently, I have somewhere in excess of 2,000,000 files + on my system.....I had no idea I'd got so much 'junk' kicking around under foot..!

For anyone who's interested, it can be found here:-

http://www.mediafire.com/file/724j4ulw82d3ruk/JDiskReport-1.4.1.sfs

Or, you can follow the link in my sig. You'll find it under 'Utilities'.

Hope it's useful. Smile

Mike gives it a jump (is that English) , un coup de fouet en français, a kick ?
Google translation : a boost.
GDmap, treesize, Baobab, JdiskReport are tools efficient to trim the fat, use them.

Yes, I was going to suggest treesize.
I wonder if there is a qt equivalent too...
