I have a directory, not a FS, that has millions of files under it: /apps/pro/risk/

I want to know what /apps/pro/risk is using in space by running du -g.

But, when I run the command below...it gives me a detail output of the area.

du -g /apps/pro/risk

Is there a way to just know the total of space used in directory from a top level using du?

I'm guessing it takes a while to run? Also, is there a way run df against a director in a similar manner?

df is for filesystems, not directories.

And yes, du can take a while.
