is for Graphical and numeric display of used disk space on KDE Linux or X11 Platforms
* Graphical and numeric display of used disk space
* Files kept apart from directories in separate <Files> items to prevent cluttering the display
* All numbers displayed human readable - e.g., 34.4 MB instead of 36116381 Bytes
* Different colors in the directory tree display to keep the different tree levels visually apart
* Display of latest change time within an entire directory tree - you can easily see what object was changed last and when.
* Treemap as alternate (auxiliary) view of a directory tree
* Easily find large in a directory tree: You see the entire tree at once. Large rectangles are large files - you can see them even if they are hidden somewhere deep within the tree.
* Treemap view slaved to the tree (list) view: Click on a file in the treemap, and it is selected in the tree view - and vice versa.
* Treemap tiles are colored by file type - all images in cyan, all audio tracks (MP3 etc.) in yellow, executables in magenta etc.; you can see from the color what a treemap rectangle is.
* Many treemap variants available:
o Plain treemap
o Squarified treemap (no thin elongated rectangles)
o Cushion treemap
o Colored treemap
o All combinations of the above
* Fast implementation: Treemap built in fractions of a second (on quite ordinary machines: Athlon-550 class)
* Treemap subwindow can be resized as the user prefers
* Treemap can be switched off with a single keypress (F9)
* Context menu with cleanup actions etc.
* Zoom the treemap in/out treemap with double click (left/right)
* Many treemap configuration options
Stays on one file system by default - reads mounted file systems only on request.
You don't care about a mounted /usr file system if the root file system is full and you need to find out why in a hurry, nor do you want to scan everybody's home directory on the NFS server when your local disk is full.
* Network transparency: Scan FTP or Samba directories - or whatever else protocols KDE support.
* Cache file reading and writing: Use the supplied Perl script kdirstat-cache-writer to scan directory trees in cron jobs over night and view the result with KDirStat whenever it is convenient - without creating I/O load on the machine you are scanning. You can also use that script to scan directories on a server and view the result on any machine that has KDE running. The server doesn't need any more infrastructure than a normal Perl installation (i.e., no X11 or KDE required).
* PacMan animation while directories are being read. OK, this is not exactly essential, but it's fun.
* Predefined cleanup actions: Easily delete a file or a directory tree, move it to the KDE trash bin, compress it to a .tar.bz2 archive or simply open a shell or a Konqueror window there.
* User-defined cleanup actions: Add your own cleanup commands or edit the existing ones.
* "Send mail to owner" report facility: Send a mail requesting the owner of a large directory tree to please clean up unused files.
* Feedback mail facility: Rate the program and tell the authors your opinion about it.
