The command gives size of all files smaller than 1024k, this information, together with disk usage, can help determin file system parameter (e.g. block size) or storage device (e.g. SSD v.s. HDD).
Note if you use awk instead of "cut| dc", you easily breach maximum allowed number of records in awk.
If you can do better, submit your command here.
