The 5.3.0 version, released yesterday includes a new check to monitor the EMS(Event Management System)-Logfile. This allows several new checks among them one to send an alarm, if an unusal high number of autogrow-events take place.
Let’s have some examples:
# check myfiler for autoSize events and alarm according to the defaults check_netapp_ems -H myfiler --name=wafl.vol.autoSize.done # same as above, but check only on node 01 check_netapp_ems -H myfiler --node=myfiler-01 --name=wafl.
The NetApp volume autosize command sets and displays the autosize settings of DataONTAP flexible volumes. This command enables a user to enable and disable autosizing on a volume, to control both the overall minimum and maximum sizes, and to control the percentage size of the increments with each grow or shrink operation. The check_netapp_pro VolumeAutosize check has been build to check all the autosized volumes on a specific host which are using this autogrow functionality.
