VMware Datastore (SOAP) not alerting



Your Vote:



Hi All,

Hopefully an easy question. We have the "VMware Datastore (SOAP)" sensor setup, which is getting all the correct metrics.

One of our datastores filled up, which the sensor is reporting as Free Space = 0%. No alert was sent out though and I can't find anywhere to configure the alerting on the sensor.

Is there anyway to get this sensor to alert?

Hello Stewart,

By default, the VMware Datastore (SOAP) sensors do not have predefined limits for the remaining disk space.

Click on the sensor to enter the overview page. Then you can click on the gauge symbol to enter the channel settings. Enable the "Limits" to enter the thresholds. This is also described in this article. You can also use the multi edit setting to enter the limits for multiple sensors and channels.

Best regards, Felix
