( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The following is the latest incarnation of something I wrote a few years back, and have refined as I have learned new tricks. The output of the df -k command is filtered for a list of directories. If the free space has changed since I last ran the command, it is stored. I also store a timestamp along with it, in case I want to look at historical trends. Right now, it keeps only the latest 8 reports.

#!/usr/bin/perl # List free space left use strict; use warnings; use Storable; my $storable_file = '/home/edi/howard/dfk.storable'; my (@reports); @reports = @{retrieve($storable_file)} if ( -e $storable_file); my %new = map {(split /\s+/,$_)[6,3]} grep {/home|archive|edi_store/} +`df -k`; $new{'timestamp'} = time; unshift @reports, \%new; if (print_report(@reports[0,1])) { pop @reports if (scalar @reports > 7); store(\@reports,$storable_file); } sub print_report { my ($nhr,$ohr) = @_; my $change_flag = defined $ohr ? 0 : 1; foreach my $key ( keys %{$nhr}) { next if $key eq 'timestamp'; if (defined $ohr->{$key} && $ohr->{$key} ne $nhr->{$key}) { printf "%-17s was: %3s now: %3s\n", $key, $ohr->{$key}, $nhr->{$ +key}; $change_flag = 1; } else { printf "%-17s: %3s\n",$key,$nhr->{$key} } } return $change_flag; }
