How do I check my bucket's used space?

Linode Staff

I want to see how much storage my bucket has used so far.

You can review your used space with the following s3cmd commands. This information is not yet visible in the Cloud Manager. We do show individual file sizes but that's not useful if you maintain a lot of files inside a bucket

For every bucket on your account:
s3cmd du -H

For a specific bucket:
s3cmd du -H s3://bucketName

Don't have s3cmd configured yet? Check out this guide:

The size of the bucket is now listed in Cloud Manager :)
