zenoss - monitoring snap reserve free space

Trying to implement some sort of volume/aggregate available space monitoring in a green light/red light way.

We currently use whatsup gold for all of our monitoring - windows and linux servers, however whatsup doesnt seem to be able to graph the netapp stuff in a nice way.

Zenoss has netapp zenpacks available and I have the volumes monitored via the perl script that come with the zenpack.

I would however like to monitor the aggregates and snapshot reserve space.

Has/is anyone out the using zenoss and do you have this working - I could spend some time modifying this perl script to monitor these oid's, but it would be nice if someone who has already done this could provide me with their scripts.

Many Thanks


Re: zenoss - monitoring snap reserve free space

Not a direct answer to your request, but as an alternative, you can use profesional developed Nagios-plugins for NetApp, which avoid als these hassles of OIDs and SNMP by using the official NetApp-API. http://www.netapp-monitoring.info/en/

This available as out of the box thing in OnCommand/DFM, which is available along with the netapp controller you buy.
