The family of Check NetApp REST monitoring plugins has grown. With the
check_netapp_disk container-type plugin the storage admin has a constant eye on disks that have been moved into unwanted containers.
Let’s look at an example:
.$ check_netapp_disk container-type -H sim96 NETAPP DISK CONTAINER TYPE OK - 28 disks checked sim96cluster-01.NET-1.28: spare sim96cluster-01.NET-1.27: spare sim96cluster-01.NET-1.26: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.25: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.24: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.23: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.22: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.21: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.20: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.19: spare sim96cluster-01.NET-1.18: spare sim96cluster-01.NET-1.17: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.16: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.15: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.14: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.13: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.12: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.11: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.10: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.9: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.8: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.7: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.6: spare sim96cluster-01.NET-1.5: spare sim96cluster-01.NET-1.4: spare sim96cluster-01.NET-1.3: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.2: aggregate sim96cluster-01.NET-1.1: aggregate
On this filer (it is a simulator) we have 28 disks. All disks are in either the aggregate or the spare container. Using the default switch of
--ok-type=^aggregate|spare$ the check is OK.
If a disc were in an e.g. unassigned or broken container, the check would alert. By changing the switch
--ok-type to e.g.
--ok-type=^aggregate|spare|unassigned$ also unassigned discs would be OK.
--include can also be used to completely exclude one or more disks from the check.
Like all plugins of the Check NetApp-REST family
check_netapp_disk only checks filers that support a RESTful API. This is true for ontap >= 9.6.
For older devices please use the Check NetApp-ZAPI which still works with 7-mode.
Documentation and availability
More details about the check can be found on our docu-site.
check_netapp_disk plugin is already available in a beta version (1.2.0-beta.1). We are now waiting for the distributor to complete the tests.
