XView sysadmin tool for monitoring diskfull situations

`disktool’ is an XView program to monitor up to 64 filesystems simultaneously and alert you when a particular filesystem is low on space. disktool is set-up to “un-iconify” when a filesystem it is monitoring has reached its’ user-definable “critical threshold”. A Unix command can also be initiated when this threshold is reached. The command and un-iconifying can be repeated every so many polls, configurable from the cmdline or from the Properties pop-up. The properties pop-up is obtained by selecting any gauge with the right mouse button. The middle mouse button has also been mapped to force a filesystem poll to update the displayed data.

`disktool’ is a good sysadmin tool for monitoring diskfull situations to avoid datafile corruption.
