Pinned topic Recommended Disk Usage Tool / Workflow

‏2012-10-30T12:31:15Z |
Hello,

Is there some (officially) recommended way of gathering disk usage information?

Currently we do something like this:

du --human-readable --max-depth $DEPTH $DATA_DIR > $REPORT

Albeit nice and easy this induces a lot of load at our file servers, so I was wondering whether or not there is something more efficient / better suited?

Kind Regards
