Volume nearly full being reported in Operations Manager

I have a condition where the default threshold is set at "Volume Nearly Full" is set to 90% which differs from the default setting of 80%. This is set globally in Operations Manager through the "options\default thresholds" configuration.

The Operations Manager control center is reporting "Volume Nearly Full" based on default values at 80% and is confusing because the customer has changed the default threshold to 90%.

Is there another location where the Operations Manager is reading this information from to report to the console, or is there a way to override this behaviour?

Hi Brian,

You can set that threshold at the particular volume level and then it will work for sure.

Go to the particular volume, click on that. In the left pane; there is one link called Edit Quota settings(under volume tools); click on that.

There you can set the thresholds; it's per volume level.

Thanks

Re: Volume nearly full being reported in Operations Manager

You can set the option "Volume Nearly Full" in one of the 2 ways. One at global level (using "dfm options set") and the another one at volume level using ("dfm volume set"). Volume level settings hold high precedence over global options unless you don't change the volume level options. Can you check your volume level options using "dfm volume get <volume>" command ?

If you want your global options to be applied to all the volumes, ensure that the intended volume's volNearlyFullThreshold is set to its default. You can set this to default by leaving the empty value.

C:\ dfm volume set filer123:/vfilerVol volNearlyFullThreshold=

Restored volume nearly full threshold (%) for filer123:/vfilerVol (326) to default.

Re: Volume nearly full being reported in Operations Manager

Thank you. I find this helpful but I am getting these errors after I set up a basic alert inside performance advisor. Before the alert was setup, ops manager was reporting based on global settings.

The alert was very basic, set against a controlloer user for testing. Is this something that would change the ops manager reporting to show warnings, where previuous to the alert creation, the warnings were not appearing?

Re: Volume nearly full being reported in Operations Manager

An alert configured in PA should not change the condition for an error

or warning. Can you get the

details for the alarm that you created, using the "dfm alarm list" CLI ?

On the volume nearly full question, if you get alerts at 80% when the

threshold is set at 90%,

that's probably a bug. To confirm, can you provide the output of:

1. dfm option list volnearlyfullthreshold

2. dfm volume get <volume-name-or-id>

for a couple of volumes on which the error was observed.

Another relatively efficient option is to use the threshold settings available in the provisioning policies of Provisioning Manager.
