Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

 

Generate an Alert where the available free space on the file system at the selected mount points drops below the specified threshold figure, percentage or absolute value (Bytes, Mbytes, Gbytes).

 

Check configuration:

 

The check is configured via the Dashboard:

 

Add : from the Add Check drop-down go to Add 24x7 Check, File System Space Check

 

Edit : select the required File System Space Check in the lower pane then from the Checks drop-down Edit Check.

 

In both cases the Mount volume and Threshold figure can be configured as required, entering OK to save changes.

 

Where a Check is added or edited the new settings are downloaded to the Agent the next time it communicates back to the Dashboard and applied when the Check runs after that.

 

Delete : select the required File System Space Check in the lower pane then from the Checks drop-down Delete. Enter the password of the user you have logged on to the Dashboard under to confirm deletion.
