Shell Script to insert into a database

Hi,

I need a shell script that can insert the output of df -h every night into a database table. The table structure is shown below. Will appreciate any pointers on it

thanks

[root@myserver ~]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1              15G  4.0G  9.8G  29% /
/dev/sda6              27G  6.9G   19G  28% /omega
/dev/sda3             4.9G  390M  4.3G   9% /var
/dev/sda5             4.9G  139M  4.5G   3% /tmp
tmpfs                 127G     0  127G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sdb2              35G   15G   19G  44% /alpha
/dev/sdc1             135G   28G  100G  22% /alpha1
/dev/sdd1             135G  105G   23G  83% /alpha2


Table Structure

SERVER_MACHINE | DATE_ID | MONTH_ID | YEAR_ID | Filesystem | Size_GB | Used_GB | Available_GB | USE_PCNT | Mounted On

myserver       | 20110315| 201103   | 2000    | /dev/sda1  | 15      |  4.0     | 9.8         | 29       | root
myserver       | 20110315| 201103   | 2000    | /dev/sda6  | 27      |  6.9     | 19.0        | 28       | omega

oops left a debug in and forgot to toss the % sigh in space used

df -P >/tmp/dfout
server=`hostname`
d_date=`date +"%Y%m%d"`
m_date=`date +"%Y%m"`
y_date=`date +"%Y"`
toss_header=0
while read line
do
        if [ "$toss_header" -eq 0 ]
        then {
                toss_header=1
        } else {
                vol=`echo $line | awk '{print $1 }'`
                blocks=`echo $line | awk '{print $2 }'`
                used=`echo $line | awk '{print $3 }'`
                avail=`echo $line | awk '{print $4 }'`
                cap=`echo $line | awk '{print $5 }' | tr "%" " "`
                mnt_on=`echo $line | awk '{print $6 }'`
                mysql --user=your_id --password=your_password yourdb << EOF
                         insert into your_table (SERVER_MACHINE,DATE_ID,MONTH_ID,YEAR_ID,Filesystem,Size_GB,Used_GD,Available_GB,USE_PCNT,Mounted_on) values ($server,$d_date,$m_date,$y_date,$vol,$blocks,$used,$avail,$cap,$mnt_on);
                        EOF
        }
        fi

give this a try assumes db is mysql but its generic sql

df -P >/tmp/dfout
server=`hostname`
d_date=`date +"%Y%m%d"`
m_date=`date +"%Y%m"`
y_date=`date +"%Y"`
toss_header=0
while read line
do
        if [ "$toss_header" -eq 0 ]
        then {
                toss_header=1
        } else {
                vol=`echo $line | awk '{print $1 }'`
                blocks=`echo $line | awk '{print $2 }'`
                used=`echo $line | awk '{print $3 }'`
                avail=`echo $line | awk '{print $4 }'`
                cap=`echo $line | awk '{print $5 }'`
                mnt_on=`echo $line | awk '{print $6 }'`
                mysql --user=your_id --password=your_password yourdb << EOF
                        echo "$server|$d_date|$m_date|$y_date|$vol|$blocks|$used|$avail|$cap|$mnt_on"
                        insert into your_table (SERVER_MACHINE,DATE_ID,MONTH_ID,YEAR_ID,Filesystem,Size_GB,Used_GD,Available_GB,USE_PCNT,Mounted_on) \
                        values ($server,$d_date,$m_date,$y_date,$vol,$blocks,$used,$avail,$cap,$mnt_on);
                        EOF
        }
