The goal is to trigger an automatic alert when disk usage goes above a given threshold. So far I have only found the command
df -hP /disk/path that returns disk usage. However, it returns lots of other information as well, as in the image below.
I am looking for the most convenient way to retrieve the
Use% statistic. Either through Regex or another Linux command.
It is different from existing question in that it only deals with extracting the right value from the
df command while the other questions deal with this part, plus sending the alert as well. The top answer given to this question which I accepted is the most elegant way I have seen to extract the right value.
