Linux disk free sensor | error SNMP 223



Hello, I have a number of linux servers I need to monitor, I set up snmp on a couple of them to run tests. After that I used the "Basic linux library (ucd-snmp-mib)" library file on the devices and I get all the CPU, RAM memory and other sensors. Everything's ok until then. The problem comes when I try to monitor the disk usage with the SNMP Linux Free Disk sensor, it returns "no such instance (SNMP error #223)", it happens to all the servers I tested. Any ideas on why could this be happening? Any configuration I need to look into? Thanks in advance.

please check your snmpd.conf if you included the disk statement like this:

includeAllDisks 10 

Afterwards restart the snmpd service. Now you should be able to use the SNMP Linux Disk Free Sensor as well.
Best regards
