11.4. statvfs — Constants used with os.statvfs()

Deprecated since version 2.6: The statvfs module has been deprecated for removal in Python 3.0.

The statvfs module defines constants so interpreting the result if os.statvfs(), which returns a tuple, can be made without remembering “magic numbers.” Each of the constants defined in this module is the index of the entry in the tuple returned by os.statvfs() that contains the specified information.

statvfs.F_FRSIZE

statvfs.F_FILES

statvfs.F_FFREE

Total number of free file nodes.

statvfs.F_FAVAIL

Free nodes available to non-super user.

statvfs.F_FLAG

Flags. System dependent: see statvfs() man page.
