EMC VPLEX: Volume Diskstat
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check measures the throughput of the EMC VPLEX volumes.
You can either have a single check for every single volume
or a summary check (which is the default) summing up the throughput
of all volumes.
The check also gives info on the IO Operations per seconds.
You can apply separate warning and critical levels for the read
and write throughput. Optionally you can have the check compute
average values on a configurable time period and have the levels
applied on the average instead of the current values. This makes
it possible to ignore short "peaks" and only trigger and longer
phases of high disk activity.
Note: It seems that the relevant SNMP data of the EMC VPLEX System
is only updated every 90 seconds. You should set the monitoring interval
to 120 seconds, otherwise there will be errors in the calucation of the rates
for read/write throughput and IOs.
Either "SUMMARY" for a summarized check of all disks or the name of the
disk device, e.g. "VPZ-B-S-L323_vol".
One service is created for all directors if the configuration
is set to ["summary"] (default).
If the configuration is set to ["physical"] one service is created
for each director.
You can also set ["summary", "physical"] to create both variants.
The configuration is set via the diskstat_inventory rule.
