comment How would I measure the size of files in a directory?
As the other folks said, that is just the first step. Kyle provided a full solution, but what I had in mind was essentially to loop through the du output, adding up the sizes until you hit your threshold.

comment RHEL5 Xen dom0 max memory?
Thanks, Jeremy. I often forget that the dom0 is just another domain, although it has some extra privileges. I'll feel a little better if I could find a reference to a 32GB limit on memory in Xen domains, but that does seem to be the case.

comment Any Problems with many NFS mounts?
Thanks, David. This is the kind of feedback I am looking for. My gut feeling is that we are small enough scale that we would not get bitten by any serious problems, but having multiple mounts of the same file share just feels ... wrong somehow.

oh, this is definitely autofs-managed, and we have lots of experience with automounted home directories here.
