Disk partitions are not monitored

Disk partition monitoring is controlled by Variables, which are are an advanced feature in Opsview Monitor. You can assign one or many Variables to a Host. You can also set Service Checks to use the Variables for a Host to create multiple services for monitoring. For example, you could have host A with 3 DISK Attributes (for Microsoft Windows servers use WINDOWS_DRIVE and the appropriate Host Template):

Using the ‘Disk’ Service Check from the ‘OS – Unix Base’ Host Template on a Unix or Linux server uses the DISK Variable to create multiple services; for each Host that has this Service Check associated, partition checks will be automatically created. So for host A, there will be 3 services created, one for each of the DISK Variables assigned:


If a Host has no DISK Attribute defined then no partitions will be monitored with this check.
