I don't believe that ESX is part of the issue as ipMonitor will simply communicate directly with the Windows 2008 R2 system using WMI queries. Having that said, I would be interested in knowing the numbers being reported by the Monitors when the issue occured. In order to do so, here's what I need you to do:
- Open the settings page for the Drive Space Monitor which failed.
- Click the "View Report" button above.
- Once the report comes up, click the "Settings" button above.
- Only check the following boxes and uncheck everything else:
- Free Drive Space
- Free Drive Space (%)
- Used Drive Space
- Used Drive Space (%)
- Drive Size
- Click "Apply"
- Now use the "Calendar" button to switch to the day the error occured.
- Now use the "Zoom" button to zoom into the hour the error occured.
This should give you the values at 5 minute intervals. If the Monitor is testing every 5 minutes, we'll see all values returned. Do any of the values look off for Free Space, Used Space or Drive Size?
Let me know,
