Executing df -k command from java is not working for multiple execute


I am executing df -k command from java using below code snippet.

Process proc = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("df -k " + path );

Its working fine when i execute only once. At the same if i execute for multiple times its failed. proc.exitValue is returning 1.

Could anyone please let me know if i need to do anything more here.

depending on the distro..

which df

on the command line should give you the full path to df.


Then add your full path to your java command.

Process proc = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("/bin/df -k /root" );

ideally your java code should check which distro / OS it is running agenst and add the correct location of df, uname -a is your friend for this.
