I'm confused. I've asked several questions in the past asking for the "most efficient" way of doing something:
- What is the most efficient way to move a large number of files that reside in a single directory?
- What's the most efficient way to grep for two completely separate things and assign the values to separate variables?
- What's the most resource efficient way to count how many files are in a directory?
This time though, when I asked what the most efficient method for calculating disk usage, the question was placed on hold: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/188006/whats-the-most-efficient-way-to-find-out-what-is-consuming-disk-space
The question originally ended with asking "What's a faster way of doing this" (which admittedly is open-ended and subjective). I have since modified the question to once again state "What is the most efficient way of doing this?"
Is this still out of scope? If so, why were the other questions allowed?
