Issue with the logical disk monitoring in SCOM 2007 SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I have an issue with the logical disk space monitoring in SCOM 2007 SP1. The issue is that scom is generating an alert when the disk space is critically low(less than 5%). This is causing an issue. :(. Can we not get an alert if he disk sapce is less than 10%(disk space low) alerts. If not, Please advise do we need to create a separate unit monitor for the same ? or how to proceed further on this.

  • in order for an alert to fire off the monitor has to cross BOTH the % AND available Free Disk space in Megabytes which is like 100 or something really small like that.

    You will need to make an override to the Free disk space monitor and increase the Free disk space in megabytes, to like any where from 2 to 10 gigs depending on the size of the disk. b/c if your disk is 100 gigs, and you want the warning at 10% free space the override will need to be at least 10 gigs. 

    Please read over the blog post that Vivian posted for Jonathan Almquist's blog. It goes into great details about the Logical Disk Free Space Monitor, and how to better configure it.

  • Hi

    • Go to Authoring select Monitors
    • in the look fo type Logical disk free space Select the tab overrides
    • Click Override, for all objects of class: Windows server 2008 Logical disk
    • Check "Error % treshold for Non system Drives" and check "Error % treshold for system drives"
    • Now You can change the overrride value to 10%
    • Save the changes to a Management pack (Not the default)
    • Click Apply and OK

    Hope this helps
