Disk throughput on Windows
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check measures the throughput of physical disk on Windows
hosts by using the performance counter object 234. The Check_MK
agent for Windows sends this object in the section <<
Please add "winperf.diskstat" to you ignored_checktypes in main.mk,
if all of your agents support winperf_phydisk.
This check share the same code and features as the check diskstat,
so the rest of this manual page is identical with that of diskstat.
You can either have a single check for every single disk
(which is the default) or a summary check summing up the throughput
of all disks.
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.
The check also gives info on the IOPS.
Either "SUMMARY" for a summarized check of alls disks or the
name of the disk device, e.g. "C:".
The inventory is configured via diskstat_inventory_mode. If this is set
to "single" (the default), then one check 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 check for read and write will be created (deprecated).
