How to monitor LVM partition?



Hi Guys,

I have DRBD mounted on LVM partition

/dev/drbd0 50G 46G 1.7G 97% /mysql-drbd

here is my LVDISPLAY output


I also added disk checks in my snmpd.conf as shown below

disk / 10000

disk /dev/drbd0 10000

but sensor only gives me WHOLE VOLUME: http://screencast.com/t/wjh77yGSg

What would you suggest?

disk linux lvm sensor snmp volume

this seems to be more a SNMP issue than one with PRTG as net snmp seems not to be able to read a single volumes out of the LVM. We did some thests in house and I'm afraid at the moment we do not have any solution for this. I will do some further research but as PRTG is not affected directly this may take some time. Sorry.
Best regards
