I have an Ubuntu server set up with the following specs
Active 512MB Ram 20GB SSD Disk New York 1 Ubuntu 12.04 x64
When I checked the available disk space, it says that I've already used 1.2 G. So far I've only installed Chef and Ruby (see here http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Installing+Omnibus+Chef+Client+on+Linux+and+Mac )
root@Chef3:/var/chef/cookbooks/main# df -h /var
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda 20G 1.2G 18G 6% /
On another droplet, I've installed more packages (Ruby, Postgres database, nginx, unicorn and a Rails application) and when I check the diskspace, it also says that I've used the same amount.
I find it funny that both droplets say i've used the same amount of diskspace when there are different packages installed and one has a Rails app on it etc
