quick and efficient disk usage scanner

Project description

dutree shows a summary of the directories/files which take up the most space.

Example usage:

$ dutree /srv

Annotated output, where only paths of >4G are shown:

12.1 G  /srv/data/audiofiles/
         ^-- audiofiles contains files/dirs with a total of 12.1G
             but it does NOT contain a single dir or file larger
             than 4G.
 4.3 G  /srv/data/callrecordings/unmatched/
 4.5 G  /srv/data/fax/
17.5 G  /srv/data/playlists/
34.4 G  /srv/data/twinfield_invoices/1/
 7.8 G  /srv/data/*
          ^-- data contains more files/directories than shown above
              but those that don't total above 4G are merged into
              this "leftover" node. That includes /twinfield_invoices/
              except for the /1/ subdirectory which already has its
              individual listing.
32   B  /srv/*
          ^-- there was only /data/ in /srv/, but the directory itself
              also takes up a tiny bit of space
 -----
80.6 G  TOTAL (86558511658)

NOTE: The directories do not count the size of themselves, only of their contents. This explains any discrepancies with du -sb output.

Library usage:

>>> from dutree import Scanner
>>> scanner = Scanner('/srv')
>>> tree = scanner.scan()
>>> tree.size()
86558511658

>>> len(tree.get_leaves())
7

>>> leaf0 = tree.get_leaves()[0]
>>> leaf0.name()
'/srv/data/audiofiles/'

>>> leaf0.size() / (1024.0 * 1024 * 1024)
12.092280263081193
