I had a problem with my (small) disk filling up and crashing my mail server. So, I wrote a simple perl script to take the output of 'df -h' and look for a % full that is greater than 97% and send me an e-mail if the % is greater than 97. I run the script daily from crontab. It works fine. Yesterday I downloaded an iso image (which brought the file system fill from 93% to 100% so that the mail server could not send me the e-mail warning.
