How to know the directory size in CENTOS 查看文件夹大小

Under any linux system, you want to use the command du. (Disk Usage)

Common usage is :

du -sh file(s) name(s)


du -sh /path/to/dir/*

du -sh .

Replace 'h' by 'k','m' or 'g' for Kilobytes, Megabytes and Gigabytes instead of human-readable. With k/m/j switches, you can even pipe the output un sort -n (numeric sort instead of lexicographic) to get the sorted by size list of files in a directory.

If you still have a big difference, you may want to try the --apparent-size switch to du which will allow you to diagnose sparse files. (files with empty space inside, to be simple)

For more information, see the manual page of du
