Hi,

We have dedicated server, we need to monitor its I/O. As far as I understand, SNMP monitoring does not support physical disks. Please advise.

Hello Michael,

Thanks for the KB post. May I know what server you would like to monitor?

For Windows, I am afraid we indeed do not have an SNMP for it.

If that's a Linux server, you can use this SNMP Linux Physical Disk Sensor

It is a Windows Server, therefore, WMI is not an option. Is there a way to do this with OID? Please explain.

Hello there,

Thanks for the feedback.

I tried to do some research, unfortunately, it seems there is no OID to monitor this. I am afraid you have to use WMI sensor as workaround. Thanks.
