DU(1) User Commands DU(1)
du - estimate file space usage
du [OPTION]... [FILE]...
du [OPTION]... --files0-from=F
Summarize disk usage of each FILE, recursively for directories.
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options
end each output line with 0 byte rather than newline
write counts for all files, not just directories
print apparent sizes, rather than disk usage; although the
apparent size is usually smaller, it may be larger due to holes
in ('sparse') files, internal fragmentation, indirect blocks,
and the like
scale sizes by SIZE before printing them; e.g., '-BM' prints
sizes in units of 1,048,576 bytes; see SIZE format below
equivalent to '--apparent-size --block-size=1'
produce a grand total
dereference only symlinks that are listed on the command line
print the total for a directory (or file, with --all) only if it
is N or fewer levels below the command line argument;
--max-depth=0 is the same as --summarize
summarize disk usage of the NUL-terminated file names specified
in file F; if F is -, then read names from standard input
-H equivalent to --dereference-args (-D)
print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M 2G)
list inode usage information instead of block usage
-k like --block-size=1K
dereference all symbolic links
count sizes many times if hard linked
-m like --block-size=1M
don't follow any symbolic links (this is the default)
for directories do not include size of subdirectories
--si like -h, but use powers of 1000 not 1024
display only a total for each argument
exclude entries smaller than SIZE if positive, or entries
greater than SIZE if negative
--time show time of the last modification of any file in the directory,
or any of its subdirectories
show time as WORD instead of modification time: atime, access,
use, ctime or status
show times using STYLE, which can be: full-iso, long-iso, iso,
or +FORMAT; FORMAT is interpreted like in 'date'
exclude files that match any pattern in FILE
exclude files that match PATTERN
skip directories on different file systems
--help display this help and exit
output version information and exit
Display values are in units of the first available SIZE from
--block-size, and the DU_BLOCK_SIZE, BLOCK_SIZE and BLOCKSIZE environ-
ment variables. Otherwise, units default to 1024 bytes (or 512 if
POSIXLY_CORRECT is set).
SIZE is an integer and optional unit (example: 10M is 10*1024*1024).
Units are K, M, G, T, P, E, Z, Y (powers of 1024) or KB, MB, ... (pow-
ers of 1000).

PATTERN is a shell pattern (not a regular expression). The pattern ?
matches any one character, whereas * matches any string (composed of
zero, one or multiple characters). For example, *.o will match any
files whose names end in .o. Therefore, the command
will skip all files and subdirectories ending in .o (including the file
