    NPM- Fixed Disk Alert Exclusion

    Jeff Page

      Hi Everyone,

       

      I have a question for somebody who is good at creating custom alerts for disk space. I have an alert that triggers if any fixed disk gets below 99%; however, we have some servers that have mapped drives to a NAS which  I would like to omit from monitoring. Rather than specify each volume to be omitted in the alert job; how would I accomplish this? Below is my current script.

       

      Volume Percent Used is Greater than 99

      VolumeType is equal to Fixed Disk

      ServerType is equal to Physical

          Jeff,

           

          You might want to make use of Custom Properties.

          [Start > Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Grouping and Access Control > Custom Property Editor]

           

          And create a Custom Property for Volumes, and group all drives that are mapped to NAS.

          E.g. a Yes/No Custom Property called NAS

           

          Back to the Trigger Condition of the Advanced Alert, you can use the following:

           

          Trigger Alert when ALL of the following apply:

             Volume Percent Used is greater than 99

             VolumeType is equals to Fixed Disk

             ServerType is equals to Physical

             NAS is not equals to Yes

           

          HTH.
