Yes, of course:
ftp:/home/bouyer>df -h ~ftp/pub
Filesystem         Size       Used      Avail %Cap Mounted on
/dev/dk0           9.0T       7.4T       1.1T  86% /home/ftp/pub

This is from:
sd1 at scsibus0 target 1 lun 0: <DELL, PERC 6/i, 1.22> disk fixed
sd1: fabricating a geometry
sd1: 9214 GB, 9436000 cyl, 64 head, 32 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 19324928000 sectors
sd1: fabricating a geometry
sd1: mbr partition exceeds disk size
sd1: GPT GUID: 459e40ec-fbae-11de-84a5-0026b97417c9
dk0 at sd1: ftp spool
sd1: tagged queueing

(this is a hardware RAID).
