I know global setting for used% is 80% nearly full and full at 90%. Now I would like to set higher for one test-volume, so here goes (AIQ 9.7P1): -Test-volume "used%" is currently 96% -Storage->Volumes, mark my testvolume -> Edit Threshold -> Capacity: Object Level -> mark -> set: -Nearly full: 90% -Full: 95% -Save&Close ->Storage Management -> Alert setup -> Add -Name: "Testing vol-used" -Resources: <selecting my test volume> move to right column -Events: Error -> volume space full, volume logical space full, volume space nearly full and volume logical space nearly full -Actions -> set my email and notification "remind every 15 mins" After saving, I check that my alarm is "enabled".
I press "Test" and get email saying "test email etc" from AIQ. This is all I ever hear from this alert. My vol is over "error-level" 95% so how come I don't ever get a email about this???
Also I don't get events about this on "Event Management". No individual nor global email.
Thanks for your answer! So based on that, you mean I cannot set alert for volume which has already breached my alert setting?
If my volume is already 96% and the alert setting is 95%, it won't trigger the alert? In order to get the warning, I need to get used% under 95 and when it breaches the limit, it will trigger the warning?
