      Description

      To keep the total number of files on dfs low, we like the users to be able to easily find out how many files each of their directory contain.

      Currently, we only have fsck or dfs -lsr which takes time.

      Can I ask for an option for du to show the total number of files (as well as the total size) of a given directory?
