diskusage.sh is a tiny shell script that checks the usage(%) of a filesystem, compares it against a set threshold value, and if it is greater than the threshold value, sends an email with a disk full warning.

p. You can simply download the shell script to a folder, and set up a cron job that runs the script every two hours or so.

p. I wrote this script mainly because it sometimes becomes impossible for me to keep a check on some rogue machines to monitor the disk usage. This script does the job for me.
