Howto find actual physical available disk space

How do you get the system to display the actual physical available disk space ?
I log on to the DroboFS box using ssh
do a df
and get the provision file system info, not the actual physical disk space

Dashboard will show you how much space you have available.

I am developing a drobo app and need the correct physical disk size during the install of the application.
So how do I retrieve that info from the command line ?

Ahh, I see - you need something akin to the Windows Capacity Filter. Since that works (albeit in 32-bit only and I don’t think it works on the FS), there must be a way. Probably better to ask in the Drobo Developer section.
