Cute decorative scissors, cutting through your code.

2016-08-16 - is a quick little script to provide an overview of the disk space used by btrfs subvolumes. It’s comparable to, but is somewhat faster and has a few options to sort the output.

Honestly, it’s still hard to draw any conclusions from the sizes provided by btrfs, but sadly, ncdu is useless for snapshot-heavy filesystems.

Only tested with btrfs-progs v4.4.1.

Download: (syntax-highligted version).

Usage --help [-nser] <path>
  -n  Order by path name
  -s  Order by (total) subvolume size
  -e  Order by exclusive subvolume size
  -r  Reverse order
