Disk Free Default Threshold Value for NetApp Disk Volumes



We've upgraded to the latest version of PRTG that has support for a bunch of new NetApp snmp sensors.. One in particular I'm asking about is the NetApp disk free sensors.. When adding the sensors it pumps out all the volumes on the Netapp, which is fine, but it doesnt have any limits by default. Can this be changed? I would like it to default to a disk free limit of 3% so I dont have to go in and set them all manually. Is this possible?

I'm afraid this is not possible at the moment. Sorry.
You will have to do this manually for now but I have forwarded your request to the responsible developer.
Best regards

Until this decision is made we've got a tipp for you. You do not need to enter the channel limits for every filesystem. The NetApp System Health sensor does provide this information. If one of the filesystems in your NetApp is below 5% "FileSystem Overall Status" turns to warning state and if it is below 3% it turns to error state.

We hope this will help you in the meantime.

We now added dafault limits to the SNMP NetApp Disk Free sensor. It will now per default turn to warning state if the free space is < 25% and to error state if it is below 10%.

This will most likely be part of version 13.1.3.x and will only work for sensor that will be added with the new version - existing sensors will not be affected.
