     Re: [snips-users] ext3 partitions

Hi Russell,

I did that as a quick fix too for some servers under my care.

But I also did a C version of the hostmon client that uses portions of
codefrom the "df" command. It seems to work with other filesystems (I
tried with ext3 and reiserfs) too.

The source code may be found here.

You might want to check out the above source code and modify it to fit
your needs. The output is very similar to the Perl version.
