View Full Version : [ubuntu] Automatic folder space checking

February 19th, 2011, 02:10 PM
Hi all,

I am at work right now, and my superiors asked me to write/find a shell script in linux that checks a folder size, and if the folder space size above the certain limit, it will automatically reduce the folder size.

Basically the folder contains only one log file e.g: main.log What I need your help is if the current folder disk space is increased to 80% means it will execute this command e.g: cp /dev/null main.log it will nullify the main.log to ZERO bit file.

also again it will check the current folder space. a automated mail should send the report like before disk space and after space.I need to cron this job daily.

Please help guys I need it very urgently!

Can anyone here help me find or help me create a script like that??

I thank you in advance,
