This is a view of the mountable devices (hard disks, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, ...) on a Linux machine.

Note: see also the diskstats module for displaying statistics on the disks themselves and their partitions, and the mounts module to display the mounted file systems.

The initial table columns are:

Important note: if you find any blank field in the displayed table, or worse, an error on the data displayed, please make sure to email me at so the problem can be corrected as soon as possible. For example, SCSI devices have not been tested extensively due to the lack of available hardware to me...

Module options:ul>

  • -C   (only available for ssh on UNIX client)
    Whether data compression is used on all data between client and server (useful on slow connections, see ssh manual for detailed information).
  • -i file   (only available for ssh on UNIX client)
    Selects a file from which the identity (private key) for authentication is read (useful if an authentication agent is not running). It must not be protected by a passphrase.
  • -p port   (only available for ssh on UNIX client)
    Port to connect to on the remote host.
  • -r (--remote) [[rsh|ssh]://][user@]host
    Remote monitoring using user as logname on remote host host (rsh or ssh facilities must be properly setup). If user is not specified, current user is used as logname on remote host. The protocol is either ssh or rsh (used by default). The module title is set to partitions(host).
    When there is a communication error with the remote host, all rows disappear and the displayed table becomes empty. A descriptive error message is also generated in such a case.

    Notes on remote monitoring:


    $ moodss disks
    $ moodss disks -r
    $ moodss disks --remote ssh://
