Python os.statvfs() Method with example

Hello dear readers! Welcome back to another section of our tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the Os statvfs() method.

Python os statvfs() method carries out a statvfs system on the given path. Below is the list of members of statvfs structure -

  • f_bsize - preferred file system block size.
  • f_frsize - fundamental file system block size.
  • f_blocks - total number of blocks in the file system.
  • f_bfree - total number of free blocks
  • f_bavail - free blocks for non-root
  • f_files - inodes
  • f_ffree - free inodes
  • f_favail - free inodes for non-root
  • f_flag - system dependent.
  • f_namemax - the maximum filename length


The following below is the syntax for Python Os statvfs() method -

os.statvfs( path )

Parameter Details

  • path - This is the path, whose statvfs information is needed.

Return Value

This returns information about a file associated with path.


The following below is a simple example -

# !/usr/bin/python

import os, sys

# showing statvfs information of file "a1.py"
stinfo = os.statvfs('a1.py')

print stinfo

When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

posix.statvfs_result(f_bsize=4096, f_frsize=4096, f_blocks=1909350L, f_bfree=1491513L,
f_bavail=1394521L, f_files=971520L, f_ffree=883302L, f_fvail=883302L, f_flag=0,

Alright guys! This is where we are rounding up for this tutorial post. In our next tutorial, we are going to be studying about the Python OS symlink() Method.
