Question regarding multiple disks and disk usage widget


#1

Hi,

I been strugling for some time with this.
At the moment the disk usage widget tells me the following:

Free: 194 GB
Used: 32 GB
Size: 225 GB

Wich is absolutely right.

On the other side I have another 3 disks mounted under /media/ wich I would really like the disk widget to see… But so far I been unable to do so.

I have the following configuration:

NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda 8:0 0 232.9G 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 229G 0 part /
├─sda2 8:2 0 1K 0 part
└─sda5 8:5 0 3.9G 0 part [SWAP]
sdb 8:16 0 931.5G 0 disk
└─sdb1 8:17 0 931.5G 0 part /media/sdb1
sdc 8:32 0 1.8T 0 disk
└─sdc1 8:33 0 1.8T 0 part /media/sdc1
sdd 8:48 0 2.3T 0 disk
└─sdd1 8:49 0 2.3T 0 part /media/sdd2
sr0 11:0 1 1024M 0 rom

udev devtmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev
tmpfs tmpfs 383M 5.9M 377M 2% /run
/dev/sda1 ext4 226G 21G 194G 10% /
tmpfs tmpfs 1.9G 16K 1.9G 1% /dev/shm
tmpfs tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock
tmpfs tmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/sdb1 ext4 917G 476G 441G 52% /media/sdb1
/dev/sdd1 ext4 2.3T 732G 1.6T 32% /media/sdd2
/dev/sdc1 ext4 1.8T 1.1T 754G 59% /media/sdc1
tmpfs tmpfs 383M 0 383M 0% /run/user/999
tmpfs tmpfs 383M 0 383M 0% /run/user/1000

and showspace shows the following:

10.5GB usename/
258.7MB QuickBox/
475.7GB sdb1/
1.0TB sdc1/
731.1GB sdd2/

By the way, since I’m the only user of this server I have no quotas.

Is there any way to show the total space on the widget?

Best regards

as of right now the only mounts the disk widget will read space for is / and /home

so no other mounts would be able to show in the widget.

Ok, thanks for the response :slight_smile:

I will be working to sort out better auto-discovery here in the near future.
