Pinned topic Can ISD6.3 monitor user created file systems?

‏2013-04-17T04:41:53Z |



I'm new to ISD 6.3, and currently considering monitoring file systems.

I found there is template for monitoring default AIX file systems, such as /, /usr, /tmp.

But I couldn't find user created file system.


Is it possible to monitor user created file system by ISD 6.3?

    Firstly,gcorneau found this solution out, not me. 


    Try this out.

    1. Go to System Status and Health --> Monitors
    2. Select your system, click create
    3. Click again your your system in the Selected Resources box
    4. Now click on Common Agent --> Disk Monitors --> the file system you want to monitor --> Percentage Space Available
    5. Click Add, enter in Name of monitor as well
    6. Click OK and now you have a monitor for that filesystem. The filesystem can be a user created filesystem.

    It was a bit torturous to get there, but it works.

    I did the above tasks to create a monitor for only one LPAR and then changed the target to All Operating Systems, in order to create a monitor for all my AIX boxes.


    Hope this helps and thanks to gcorneau!
