How to get total of all dir using du

I am trying to use du to get a total of all dirs sizes and totaled at the end.

I don’t want certain dirs I would like to total everything show total at the end.

>Solution :

I think the answer you are looking for is this command:

du -csh tutorials/target/ tutorials/test_dir

Here is the example output:

36K tutorials/target/
12K tutorials/test_dir
48K total
