how to find folder size in Shell


How can i find the folder size/available size in Shell?
when i use gnome to view /tmp folder size it gives me 158kb used. But when i connect to the system using WinSCP, tmp folder size is shown 900kb. Which one is correct? and whats the command line query to find the folder size?
