df -hH

Disk space in a human readable "marketing" (1000 instead of 1024)
format (yes the extra big H is important). Here's the difference on
the box I'm on:

charm at drupalserver:~$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1              71G  6.4G   61G  10% /
udev                  496M  248K  496M   1% /dev
none                  496M  296K  496M   1% /dev/shm
none                  496M  336K  496M   1% /var/run
none                  496M     0  496M   0% /var/lock
none                  496M     0  496M   0% /lib/init/rw
charm at drupalserver:~$ df -hH
Filesystem             Size   Used  Avail Use% Mounted on

udev                   521M   254k   520M   1% /dev
none                   521M   304k   520M   1% /dev/shm

none                   521M      0   521M   0% /var/lock
none                   521M      0   521M   0% /lib/init/rw
charm at drupalserver:~$

We use this in CR when specing Linux boxes. We also use (for memory)

cat /proc/meminfo | grep MemTotal
