New add-on as of Core Update 151.

Ncdu is a disk usage analyzer with an ncurses interface. It is designed to find space hogs on a remote server where you don't have an entire graphical setup available. Ncdu aims to be fast, simple and easy to use. 1


ncdu can be installed with the Pakfire web interface or via the console:

pakfire install ncdu


There is no web interface for this Addon. To run this Addon open the client console or terminal and access the IPFire box via SSH.

To obtain a list of possible commands, options, and arguments:

ncdu -h

The output is similar to this:

[root@ipfire ~]# ncdu -h
ncdu <options> <directory>
  -h,--help                  This help message
  -q                         Quiet mode, refresh interval 2 seconds
  -v,-V,--version            Print version
  -x                         Same filesystem
  -e                         Enable extended information
  -r                         Read only
  -o FILE                    Export scanned directory to FILE
  -f FILE                    Import scanned directory from FILE
  -0,-1,-2                   UI to use when scanning (0=none,2=full ncurses)
  --si                       Use base 10 (SI) prefixes instead of base 2
  --exclude PATTERN          Exclude files that match PATTERN
. . .


To scan and browse the full filesystem all you need is a simple:

ncdu /
