How to check recursive space usage in Ubuntu 16.04

There are times where I need to get the space taken each by my www sites. I use this command to get the space usage (recursively) for my www sites in /var/www/html

$ du -h -d1 /var/www/html

The result is as follows


dutool for disk usage
so the values are easily readable by ‘humans’
-d1depth 1 level (how deep we want the recursive to happen)
/var/www/html/path to start

For more information, checkout man du page.
