AIX Hard Disks: Throughput

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: AIX

This check measures the disk IO of hard disks on AIX. The agent provides this information via the command diskio -d.

This check is compatible with diskstat, but only supports {throughput}, no latency and queue lengths.

The WARN/CRIT levels can be configured manually for each read and write.

Please read further details in the man page of diskstat.


Either "SUMMARY" for a summarized check of alls LUNs or the name of the disk device, e.g. "hdisk15".


The inventory is configured via diskstat_inventory_mode. If this is set to "single" (the default), then one service will be created for each disk. If it is set to "summary" then only one service per host will be created that has at least one hard disk. If set to "legacy" then a separate service for read and write will be created (deprecated).
