    Graphical Disk Storage from Remote Mac

    the main partition with the system installation is running out of space. this is a Ubuntu server (headless) install.

    my main daily computer is a Mac. is there a binary / daemon i can use to produce a dynamic (preferred) or at least static graphical treemap representation of the used space that i can view from the Mac? My presumption here is most would use a browser based interface, but I have no problem is any Mac app / binary exists that I can select remote Ubuntu servers to scan / display from.

    i have seen baobab (disk utiliser) but this seems entirely Ubuntu centric, which is no use to me. i have also installed webmon and monitorix on this server too, so if there are means to use these, that would also be fine.

    hope for some good suggestions...

    How do you usually connect to the server ?
    From the MacOS X Finder : command-K ?

    I typically connect via SSH for most admin tasks, etc.

    However I have also configured numerous apps, etc, on this box too. Most run through browser-based use, i.e. webmin, monitorix, among others.

    I can also see the server's SMB Shares in the Mac's Finder. I could also connect through your indicated method above too.

    None of these are able to provide the same form of output regarding disk usage that the Disk Usage Analyzer / Boabob apps do which is what I require, I would just like the main binary to run from the Mac and remotely connect into the Ubuntu.

    Looking around it appears that baobab is available on macports (should bring some gnome packages as a dependencies).
