Free disk space sensors don't find partitions/drives on external storage system

Hello,

I would like to ask how to request free disk space of a database server - but not the free space on the local built-in disk array but on the attached storage system.

All kinds of WMI sensors failed - they all only find the server's local built-in disks.

It's bad, because the local disk space is not the problem ... but the data partitions on the attached storage system.

It is an Oracle database server, Windows-based.

We don't want to create shares which refer to the partitions on the storage.

Is there any other way?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards.

Thomas

Dear user

The only other way is to either use SNMP (if your SNMP agent can see those disk partitions) or writing a custom sensor which returns the free disk space. The WMI query we use intentionally considers internal drives only.
