But I still need to know how much of each partition is used/unused.
Usually, all of a partition is used. If the partition contains a
filesystem, swap area, RAID member or LVM physical volume, these data
structures use all the partition space. How much of the space within the
data structure is used is outside the scope of the partition level and
requires tools specific to the data structure type.
Note that df can show only the used space of mounted filesystems and is
not always accurate (btrfs).
