    help me in modifying the resource configuration file in Free BSD

    Iam doing a project in Free BSD and i am stuck with a puzzle. Please any one of you clarify my doubt :

    How to add a mechanism to check the status of the file system which alerts the root user via. email if any single partition is greater than 90% full. The alert should include the file system directory name and the partition?

    I'm not sure but it really does seem as if you are trying to get us to do your homework for you...

    I'm not an awk wizard, so I used the awk part from the former thread of yours:
    while `true`; do
            if [ `df |sed '1d'|awk '{if ($5 > 90) print $5,$6}'|wc -l` > 0 ]; then
                    echo filled up
            sleep 86400
    I haven't tested it on freebsd, but you can. Replace "echo filled up" with some command to mail root. "sleep 86400" edits how long it takes (in seconds) before it re-checks how filled up the filesystems are, in the script it's set to 86400 seconds = 24 hours.
