Volume autogrow and E-Mail notifications

Hi,

we have a new Netapp storage... and I use the volume autogrow feature... (no problem)

But how and where can I activate e-mail notifications for "autogrow" events?!

I get mails from many events e.g. "volume full", "volume nearly full", "Snapshots fulle" etc.....

Receiving mails from "autogrow" is impossible !?!?!

Who knows where and how to configure this?

thx

daniel

Re: Volume autogrow and E-Mail notifications

Hello Daniel,

I don't know if we can receive nothification for autoGrow.

If this can help, i found this options on DFM about growth rate:

# dfm eventType list

Event Name                                         Severity     Class            

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

.....

volume-growth-rate:abnormal                   Warning      volume.growthrate

volume-growth-rateSmiley Surprisedk                         Normal       volume.growthrate

.......

# dfm volume get -q Vol-Test

...

volGrowthEventMinChangePct=1

.....

You can set the value of   "volGrowthEventMinChangePct" with   the value you want                             

# dfm volume set Vol-Test volGrowthEventMinChangePct=value

You can then create an alarm :

#  dfm help alarm

NAME
    alarm -- create, modify, delete, and list alarms

SYNOPSIS
    dfm alarm create [ -E <email-to-addresses> ] [ -F <page-to-addresses> ]
                [ -C <event-class> ] [ -A <admin-login-name> ]
                [ -P <page-to-admin> ] [ -T <trap-to> ] [ -s <script> ]
                [ -u <alarmScriptRunAs> ] [ -g <group> ] [ -h <event-name> ]
                [ -l <time-from> ] [ -m <time-to> ] [ -v <event-severity> ]
                [ -r <repeat-notify> ] [ -i <repeat-interval> ]
                [ -b <disabled> ]

Hi Said,

thx for your answer..

But the "volume-grow-rate" alarm is not what I need.

I already get these notifications.

But, I think I have the solution for this problem.

On the DFM (Management Console), I found under "Alarm -> by Event" the entry named "Volume Autosized".

I activated this alarm, but nothing has happened....confusion...

I had also set the DFM as trap receivers

On the Filer "System Manager" was only one SNMP TrapReceiver configured. (Our external Monitoring System)

So, I added the DFM as TrapReceiver and now it works fine!

I don't understand why I need SNMP Traps for some notifications and for other events it works without SNMP??? This is confusing....

Here my sample e-mail notification:

##############################

dfm: Information event on filer01:/Autosize_test_DS (Volume Autosized)

An Information event at 07 Feb 14:58 W.  on Volume Autosize_test_DS on Active/Active Controller filer01:

Volume Autosized.

Volume Autosize: Automatic increase size of volume 'Autosize_test_DS' by 102400 kbytes done.

*** Event details follow.***

blablabla

Event Arguments

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

volAutogrowMsg: Volume Autosize: Automatic increase size of volume 'Autosize_test_DS' by 102400 kbytes done.

trapId: 666

Hi Daniel,

Have you managed to get email based alarms working for the volume autosizing?
