I love this piece of software ncdu; I also have it installed on all my servers. But imagine a cozy Saturday evening ruined by an alert from Grafana that says one of your servers uses more than 95% of disk capacity. You suddenly rush to your workstation, switch your browser to work profile, and ssh to your machine without knowing what the reason behind this high disk usage is. You are distressed and rely on your comfy buddy
ncdu, but the problem is much more complicated. You can't find the files in common folders on the server. Naturally, you do a
ncdu / only to witness it scan
/proc for the whole time it took for me to write this question.
So my question is, if someone would want to contribute to the
ncdu source code, what locations come to mind and are meaningless to scan for disk usage?
