    How to create a notification email re: Volume Monitoring

    scarmen

      Hi,

       

      I need help in creating an email notification for Volume Monitoring the will be triggered if the remaining disk space is less than 90%.  I've been trying to insert Variables to depict this but, unsuccessful.

       

      If you have a template I could use, I'd appreciate it.  Thanks!

          There's a Canned (Out-of-the-box) alert "Alert me when the free space of a volume is less than 5%" that you can copy and use as a template.  just change 5 to 10.

           

          Or are you asking about wanting to insert something in the E-Mail alert itself?

            Have you been doing something similar to step 8 below?

            Volume alert setup

            Overview

            This article provides steps on how to create a Volume alert.

            Environment

            NPM 11.5.0 and later

             

            Steps

            1. Login to your Web Console with full Admin rights.
            2. Go to Home tab > Alerts > Click Manage Alerts.
            3. Click Add new alert.
            4. Under the Properties tab – Enter a name for the alert and description, then click Next.
            5. Under the Trigger Condition tab – put the “I want to alert on” VOLUME.

              All Child conditions must be satisfied (AND)

                              Volume  Percent USED    is greater than or equal to 75%

                              **Condition must exist for more than (1 Minute).

            6. Leave the Reset Condition tab empty.

            7. Under Time of Day, leave it at default.

            8. Go to Trigger Action > Add Action > Send Email /Page.
              Put the name of the Action
              Set the Email address
              Message Part:
              Click insert Variable to use for information on what to query. Samples are:
                               Node Name: ${N=SwisEntity;M=Node.Caption}
                               Volume Name ${N=SwisEntity;M=FullName}
                               Space Used: ${N=SwisEntity;M=VolumePercentUsed}
                               Time stamp: ${N=Generic;M=DateTime;F=DateTime}

            9. Click Next to submit.
              Reset Action – just do the reverse of the Trigger action. You may select Send Email/Page, just make sure you change the title of the email or put an indicator that this email is for reset action notification.

            10. Click Submit to Save.

              Hello Geoff and d09h,

               

              Thanks for your help!  I was able to set up the volume monitoring using your recommendations plus the template given to me by Ed.  Which is:

               

               

               

              SUBJECT: ***PROBLEM ALERT*** - DISK: ${NodeName} - ${Caption} is at ${VolumePercentUsed} % full.

               

               

              MESSAGE:

               

              Node Name: ${NodeName}

               

              Node Type: ${Node.Type}

               

              Status: ${Status}

               

              Comment: ${Node.Comments}

               

              ${Caption}

               

              Total Size: ${VolumeSize}

               

              Used: ${VolumeSpaceUsed}

               

              Free: ${VolumeSpaceAvailable}

               

              Percentage Used: ${VolumePercentUsed} %

               

              Reference

               

              Alert Name: ${AlertName}

               

               

               

              Thanks again!
