Dear list,

I would like to announce a new tool for analyzing disk usage on btrfs volumes:

btdu works by continuously picking random points in the logical
address space and resolving those to paths. The results are displayed
in an ncdu-like interface, which is updated live as more data is
collected. Consequently, results "accurately" (as far as random
sampling allows) depict usage when deduplication (snapshots / extent
cloning) and compression is in use.

I hope you will find this tool useful in obtaining more insight about
your data storage.

- Vladimir
