Top 10 most/least available disk space doesn't show all disks



I've used SNMP (not WMI) to discover disks on our devices, so the disk sensors have tags like snmpdiskfreesensor, diskfree and snmp, but these sensors don't show up in the Top 10 Most/Least Available Disk Space dashboard widgets. This appears to be because the dashboard uses a different filter tag: diskspacesensor. Same goes for the equivalent top 10 map objects.

As a workaround, I've manually edited the underlying files (eg. top10listcontent.htm, Top10 Disks Least Free.htm) to include the diskfree tag. I'm guessing though that my changes will be lost on the next update. Is there a better solution for this?

Thanks - Simon

We've added the tag in question as a default tag for this sensor. This change will take effect in the version 13.x.7 Thank you very much for the feedback.

We recommend to add the tag manually to the sensors. If you do use a lot of custom tags, you will need to do this for every sensor separately. If you only use the tags, that are assigned automatically, you can use "Sensors" -> "By Type" and then select all and use multiedit. Please note, that the multiedit will overwrite all existing tags and only assign the new ones, you just entered.
