    You could start by showing us where in your code you have difficulties. As the program currently just displays the status quo, I imagine you have to collect the disk space report over time. Then, create your report from that.

    Personally, I would store that data in a database, for example DBD::SQLite, and then create the reports from that database using Querylet. But you can get by without a relational database if you hardcode the reporting logic into your script.

      Thanks for replying me! Corion.

        So you have step one done, collecting the time series data. You seem to have an error in your shell script because you create a file commandout.txt but mail a file output.txt.

        The next steps would be

        1. Create a data structure from the report files
        2. Create reports from the data structure
