File SystemΒΆ

../_images/fs.png

Glances displays the used and total file system disk space. The unit is adapted dynamically.

Alerts are set for user disk space usage.

Legend:

User disk space usage Status
<50% OK
>50% CAREFUL
>70% WARNING
>90% CRITICAL

Note

Limit values can be overwritten in the configuration file under the [fs] section.

By default, the plugin only displays physical devices (hard disks, USB keys). To allow other file system types, you have to enable them in the configuration file. For example, if you want to allow the shm file system:

[fs]
allow=shm

Also, you can hide mount points using regular expressions.

To hide all mount points starting with /boot and /snap:

[fs]
hide=/boot.*,/snap.*

Filtering are also applied on device name (Glances 3.1.4 or higher).

Example to hide all /dev/sdb mount points:

[fs]
hide=/dev/sdb.*
