please see this as a renewed request for this feature. I really think it
does belong in Webmin, as much as other "status functions", etc. And
hooking it into Virtualmin (optionally) makes sense too.
We'll be happy to drop you guys an extra donation for the development of
this functionality as it would provide us with out-of-the-box
functionality in Webmin that we need.
For the Virtualmin side of things, something like
Disk space utilization report:
Mail: nnnn GB
Web: nnnn GB
Home directory: nnnn GB
with optional triggers to include a given site in a summary e-mail sent
to us. We don't want to enforce quotas, but we want to know if we have a
"renegade" user :-)
The VM module could simply use the regular "directory utilization
monitor" module (the one I'm also proposing :-).
If this really really can't go into Webmin/Virtualmin, then I'll shut up

I think I've mentioned something like this before.. but what I'd like to
1) A report on disk usage on a per directory level, given a starting
point. For VM servers, and for "any directory". Optionally to exclude
the log, cgi-bin, awstats, or whatever directories I choose for VM style
usage. Perhaps only trigger report if it exceeds NN space.
2) The ability to purge old files, given a starting directory (and then
downwards). Old files being judged on mtime or atime, as configured
(because ctime has nothing to do with how long the file has been there).
Or is this something you feel is beyond the scope of Webmin and should
rather be done using a shell script? :-)
