statvfs

node binding to POSIX statvfs (file system information)

statvfs

statvfs is a super simple module that just gives you access to statvfs(3). If you're not familiar with it, you use it to get information about the filesystem. This API looks like node's native fs.stat API. Run man statvfs for more information.

Usage

var statvfs = require('statvfs');

statvfs('/tmp', function (err, stats) {
    assert.ifError(err); // on errno, will be a node ErrnoException
    console.log(JSON.stringify(stats, null, 2));
    /*
    {
      "bsize": 4096,
      "frsize": 4096,
      "blocks": 262144,
      "bfree": 252508,
      "bavail": 252508,
      "files": 292304,
      "ffree": 289126,
      "favail": 289126,
      "fsid": 140509193,
      "basetype": "tmpfs",
      "flag": 4,
      "namemax": 255,
      "fstr": "/tmp"
    }
    */
});

});

Installation

npm install statvfs

Note this is a native add-on. You will need gcc, python, blah blah blah.
