This new plugin monitors the space occupied by snapshots on a volume in its first stage of development. It is similar to its ZAPI predecessor
check_netapp_pro.pl Snapshots in that it can calculate the space required by snapshots either relative to the volume size or the snapshot reserve. The parameter
--base=volume|reserve is responsible for this.
Syntax and Options
With many options like
--include/exclude=<regex> the check can be tailored to the needs of your organisation. Please have a look at the checks documentation
page for explanations and examples.
The monitoring of aggregate snapshots is planned for a later expansion stage.
For special applications, a list of all snapshots including their size and date can optionally be output in JSON format. This allows scripts to automatically delete older snapshots of a particular aggregate that is getting full.
