Is it Possible to Perform Soft Quota Reporting?

I’m looking for some help here…

Bank of America is looking for a report within OperationsManager which shows soft quotas that have been reached however (a simple yes itwas reached/no it wasn’t report), I cannot find anything like this, and thebank is asking for this report today.

According to Operations Manager documentation, the SoftLimit (aka soft quota) represents when a qtree is considered to be “almostfull.”  That being the case, if a “qtree almost full” event is found, thesoft limit was hit.  This does not appear to be happening.

Soft  Limit

 

In  "Space Availability" report, this option specifies the threshold in  MBs at which a qtree is considered to be almost full. It is specified in the  /etc/quotas file on the storage system

 

If there is indeed no report that shows if/when a soft quotawas reached, what alternatives do we have to give a yes/no answer as to whetheror not a soft quota was reached?  Can a report/graph be created whichshows qtree size vs soft quota over time?

Thanks,

Chris

Re: Is it Possible to Perform Soft Quota Reporting?

Hi Chris,

               There is a report in DFM that does report on qtrees usage including soft quota.Below is the report on the same.


C:\Documents andSettings\Administrator>dfm report view qtrees-available 134

Object IDQtree    Storage Server Volume   Used  AvailableSoft Limit Disk Space Limit Available (%)

--------- ---------------------- -------- ----- --------- ---------- -----------------------------

134      cifsonly sim1          CifsOnly 12320     8160      5120           20480          39.8

Totals                                    12320      8160      5120           20480          39.8

C:\Documents andSettings\Administrator>

Where Softlimit is soft quotaand diskspacelimit is the hard quota.

screenshot of SM2.0 for verification.

The following DFM event arerasied only when hard quotas are breached.

[root@lnx186-118 ~]# dfmeventtype list | grep -i qtree.kbytes

qtree-almost-full                            Warning      qtree.kbytes

qtree-full                                   Error       qtree.kbytes

qtree-space-normal                           Normal       qtree.kbytes

[root@lnx186-118 ~]#

Where as there is a way to generateevent or rather trap from filer when soft quota is exceeded as follows.

In the filer set the DFM serveras trap host.

sim1*> snmp

location:

       adaikkap-lxp

authtrap:

       1

traphosts:

Now I got the following events
