 Accessing LOCAL disk drives? (and Disk Space theory)
Q:

How do I see all of the local drives that are physically attached
to a specific UNIX machine?

I'm told that I am having a local space issue, but no one here
seems to have a clear understanding of local disk space vs physical
attached drives.

The unix box in question is a database server, the only way I
can figure out to check local disk space is to go to the "/dev/vg00"
directory (there is only one volume group, vg00), do an "ll"crw-r-----   1
and I get back the following:

root       sys         64 0x000000 Mar 24 15:37 group
brw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000001 Mar 24 15:37 lvol1
brw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000002 Mar 24 15:37 lvol2
brw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000003 Mar 24 15:37 lvol3
brw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000004 Mar 24 15:37 lvol4
brw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000005 Mar 24 15:37 lvol5
brw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000006 Mar 24 15:37 lvol6
brw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000007 Mar 24 15:37 lvol7
brw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000008 Mar 24 15:37 lvol8
crw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000001 Mar 24 15:37 rlvol1
crw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000002 Mar 24 15:37 rlvol2
crw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000003 Mar 24 15:37 rlvol3
crw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000004 Mar 24 15:37 rlvol4
crw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000005 Mar 24 15:37 rlvol5
crw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000006 Mar 24 15:37 rlvol6
crw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000007 Mar 24 15:37 rlvol7
crw-r-----   1 root       sys         64 0x000008 Mar 24 15:37 rlvol8
bash: gsmbite ->

From what I understand, these volumes (are the rlvol virtual?) span
all the available space on the local harddrives?  When I check for
space on these volumes, via "bdf *" I get the following:

lvol3               199381   32391  147051   18%
lvol4               230517     381  207084    0%
lvol5               600571  314969  225544   58%
lvol6               480341   19909  412397    5%
lvol7                19861      92   17782    1%
lvol8              1029753  235883  690894   25%
rlvol1              199381   12865  166577    7% /
bdf: rlvol2: Invalid argument
rlvol3              199381   32391  147051   18% /
rlvol4              230517     381  207084    0% /
rlvol5              600571  314969  225544   58% /
rlvol6              480341   19909  412397    5% /
rlvol7               19861      92   17782    1% /
rlvol8             1029753  235883  690894   25% /
bash: gsmbite ->

This leads me to believe that this machine is NOT out of space locally.

Is there any way to actually look at the space capacities and
amount of used storage on the LOCAL harddrives themselves?  I know
that this machine actually has 3 drives (1 interal, 2 external) -
but I have no idea of how to list them, what to call them, or
where to find them.

Help appreciated..

man df

df
then look for the filesystem entries that start with /dev (if you're on a
'vanilla' Unix system), and check out the Capacity figures. Capacity
measures the amount used as a percentage of total space for the device.
