Cute decorative scissors, cutting through your code.


2016-08-16 - btrfs-size.pl is a quick little script to provide an overview of the disk space used by btrfs subvolumes. It's comparable to btrfs-size.sh, 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: btrfs-size.pl (syntax-highligted version).


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

Example output

  # btrfs-size.pl /data
