Monitoring Physical Disks



We have several SuperMicro servers, some running Windows Server 2008/2012 and others running VMWare ESXI 6.0 and 6.5. We already have PRTG monitoring disk space but need away to monitor physical disks that may be part of RAID setups to provide proactive support for client. When a drive fails, need to get notified. Is this possible with PRTG and how?

Thanks, Bill

Hi there,

You could try to use the WMI HDD Health Sensor:

However there is currently no real way known to us to monitor the RAID Status under Windows. Maybe other customers have more ideas about this.

Best regards.
