    Windows Server 2012 data deduplication and volume monitoring

    syncopix

      Hello,

       

      I enabled the data deduplication feature on a 2012 Windows server but I've noticed the volume monitoring is no longer working correctly:

       

      Windows shows 186GB free on the E: volume since dedup has been running:

      SolarWinds is only showing 13.9GB available:

      And here you can see where I enabled dedup in Windows. The graph suddenly goes to 0%:

      The server is being monitored via SNMP.

       

      Has anyone else noticed this? Is this a SolarWinds issue or is it SNMP on the Windows server that doesn't understand dedup?

       

      Thanks.
