VMWare ESX Host Systems: Used Space

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

This check uses the output of the vsphere special agent in order to monitor the used space in datastores. It also displays this amount of (over) provisioning.

This check is 100% compatible with normal filesystem check in all respects. Please refer to the manpage of df for details - except for the support for filesystem grouping.


The logical name of the filesystem (not the mountpoint!)


One service is created for each datastore.
