df -v versus df -vf

Why would a df -v report usage greater than df -vf would?

# df -v
Mount Dir  Filesystem              blocks      used      free   %used
/          /dev/root               470978    466828      4150   100%

# df -vf
Mount Dir  Filesystem              blocks      used      free   %used
/          /dev/root               470978    408284     62694    87%

Run man df on your unknown operating system.

Mine are a bit different as well, eh?

ptycity:/tmp > df -v
Mount Dir  Filesystem              blocks      used      free   %used
/          /dev/root              8167402   2379090   5788312    30%
/stand     /dev/boot                30720     15108     15612    50%
ptycity:/tmp > df -vf
Mount Dir  Filesystem              blocks      used      free   %used
/          /dev/root              8167402   2378600   5788802    30%
/stand     /dev/boot                30720     15108     15612    50%

1. Difference between df -k and df -b

Hi all,
I am curious about the difference in free space reported by df when
using the -k versus the -b options. The -b option shows more space
available then -k. The man pages are not much help except the hint
that -k shows space available for "unpriviledged users".  Man pages
say both options report in kbytes. The os level is 5.6.  As an
example:

$ df -k /dbac00
Filesystem
kbytes used avail capacity Mounted on
/dev/vx/dsk/oracledg/dbac00
1946504 1660935 90919 95% /dbac00

$ df -b /dbac00
Filesystem avail
/dev/vx/dsk/oracledg/dbac00 285569

In the above the -k shows 90919, the -b shows 285569. Any insights
into the reason for the different reported values would be greatly
appreciated.

Thank you,
Kurt
