    How to achieve this

    I am using Linux operating system and I want to find the size of OpenLinux system. How can I do that? One way of achieving this is to use du command. Apart from this what other commands can I use for achieving this?

    Yes du is a command in Openlinux used to display information about disk usage. One more command I am aware of is quota which display or set disk quotas, provided quotas are in your kernel.I don't think there is any other command other than these two to achieve the above purpose. Hope someone mention about this in this discussion.

    du is the only command used for displaying the total disk usage for named directories.
