Disk Space Monitoring in 19.4

Hey guys, Is there anyway to disable or change the value of disk monitoring alerts in Networker 19.4? It doesn't make sense to have this kind of alerts on the NMC.

At this point there is no option to disable this option. Understand it would  fill daemon.raw on NetWorker server. The message generated are too frequent and there has to be a way once admin knows that disk fullness on client or NWR server itself  has been generated , admin should be able to stop these logs from generating. 

nsrd NSR info Disk Space Emergency event. These are frequently generated. 

Best thing would have been to have this alert only for NWR server and let customers manage clients as they would deem necessary.

Which kind of alerts do you mean?

  -  For NW 'internal' alerts (like index alerts) you could disable the appropriate notification

  -  For NW backup disk alerts you should set the appropriate device to 'disabled' or in 'service mode'

 

Anything else? - then please explain.

Hi Bingo,

In 19.4, when the networker client has less then 20% of disk space available (i.e in C drive) it will trigger alerts on your NMC. I've seen a number of warning regarding this on my test machine.

Maybe you can refer to this

OK - it took me a while how to figure out how exactly this feature seems to work:

  -  It obviously only monitors the volume where NW has been installed (where the NSR directory resides)

  -  It obviously works only during automatic backups of a client.

  -  For each client with too less disk space You will receive one appropriate alert in the NW Admin Alerts area - I think this is o.k. and acceptable.

  -  Unfortunately, every some minutes there will be triggered appropriate messages in the daemon.raw file ... for both, setting and clearing these events. During my test backup of about 1:45 hrs 140 of these lines have been generated for the backup server and one remote client. In a huge environment with a bunch of such clients, such behavior will fill up the daemon.raw file unnecessarily fast with redundant information.

 

How to suppress disk space monitoring? - I actually have no idea but I could think of toggling this feature by creating an appropriate file in the /nsr/debug directory.

Dell/EMC - would you please share this info, if available?
