We use OCUM to create alerts when a volume his 80% and 90% utilization, but we would really like to have a directory listing of the directories in that volume added to the alert description field. Is there way to easily do this or do we have to switch to using a custom script to create and send the alerts? We are currently using Active IQ Unified Manager 9.6P1.
We had a script that would generate the e-mails and format them the way that we are looking for using the df command, but then we switched to the OCUM/ActiveIQ method as it seemed cleaner. If we were to call that external script, is there a way to parse that output into the e-mail generated by OCUM/ActiveIQ or the only workflow is to execute the script when conditions are met and all of the formatting is handle by our script and not OCUM/ActiveIQ?
In the OCUM/AUM 9.6 and I think even previous versions, when you setup an Alert, there is an 'Action' tab which basically allows you to add or associate a script with your ALERT. What that means is that : When an alert is generated for an event in Unified Manager, an alert email is sent to the specified recipients and if you have associated an alert with a script, the script is executed.
I have never used this feature, but after reading the documentation it appears to me that it is used for running a command on the FILER to get more details perhaps or to do something in resposne to that event.
If your intention is to generate a list of folders/Dir and their sizes for the 'Volume Space Full' or 'Volume Space Nearly Full' Altert email, then I am afraid you may have to do this outside of OUCM using your custom (like 'du' in *nix.)
As you said - execute the script when conditions are met.
