I inherited management of a SAN with a 350 Gbyte shared space.  I am trying to determine how much space is consumed by each user.

Is there a product or tool which will tell me how much space each user has consumed?

    Enable Quotas - you don't have to enable limits, but enable the quotas and then based on file ownership, you'll see who uses what space.

    Alternatively, using directory values, you can run a command like DIRUSE and get a report that way.
