You can create a disk usage alert in the CMC Management Console to warn you when a disk partition reaches a preselected use limit. When the limit is reached, an InternalWarning event displays in the Monitor view.

You can define the disk use limit by the percentage of unavailable disk space (such as 75%) or the amount of free disk space (such as 58G).

  1. Open a connection to the LEM appliance management console using:

    • vSphere console connection
    • Hyper-V console connection
    • PuTTY session on port 32022 or 22 as a cmc user
  2. At the cmc> prompt, enter appliance to access the Appliance menu.

  3. At the cmc::appliance> prompt, enter diskusage to view the disk use of each partition. For example:

    cmc::appliance > diskusage
    Checking Disk Usage (this could take a moment)... ....00.00.00.00.00.00.00.
    Partition Disk Usage:
            LEM:??            35% (991M/3.0G)
            OS:??             45% (1.3G/3.0G)
            Logs/Data:??       1% (901M/234G)
            Temp:             2% (252M/5.9G)
    
    Database Queue(s): 4.0K (No alerts queued, 0 alerts waiting in memory)
    Rules Queue: 2.1M (0 alerts queued, 0 alerts waiting in memory)
    Console Queue: 2.1M (0 alerts queued, 0 alerts waiting in memory)
    DataCenter Queue: 2.1M (0 alerts queued, unknown number of alerts waiting in memory)
    EPIC Rules Queue: 2.1M (0 alerts queued, 0 alerts waiting in memory)
    Forensic Database Queue: 2.1M (0 data queued, unknown number of data items waiting in memory)
    Logs: 1.3M
    Tool Profiles Message Queue: 2.1M (0 alerts queued, unknown number of alerts waiting in memory)					
    
    cmc::appliance >
  4. At the cmc::appliance> prompt, enter diskusageconfig.

    Each partition and corresponding disk use limit displays on your screen. For example:

    cmc::appliance > diskusageconfig
    Current Disk Usage Configuration:
    # | Partition (filesystem) | Configured limit
    ===============================================
    1 |    LEM (/usr/local)    |        90%
    2 |    OS (/)              |        90%
    3 |    Logs/Data (/var/)   |        10G
    4 |    Temp (/tmp)         |        90%
    You can define your disk use limit by the percentage of unavailable disk
    space (such as 75%) or the amount of free disk space (such as 58G). 
    Enter the partition number you want to change (enter 'exit' and press 
    <Enter> to quit):
  5. Enter the partition number you want to change, and then press Enter.
  6. Enter the disk usage limit value in percentage (such as 75%) or size (such as 58G), and then press Enter.

    For example, to change the OS disk partition limit in step 3 from 45% to 40%, enter 40%. To change the OS??disk partition limit from 1.3 GB to 2.0 GB, enter 2GB.

    Disk usage limit [90%, sizeK, sizeM, sizeG, sizeT] (default 90%):??40%
    Limit '40%' for the 'OS' partition is set.
    Press <Enter> to set the next partition. Enter 'exit' and press <Enter>
    to quit:
  7. Press Enter to set the next partition and repeat step 6 (if required).

    See Set the Logs/Data partition for additional information.

  8. When you are finished, enter exit, and then press Enter to quit.

Set the Logs/Data partition

When you set the Logs/Data partition (3), a message displays prompting you to consider changing the database disk configuration using the dbdiskconfig command. SolarWinds recommends setting the Logs/Data partition and the database disk configuration to the same value.

To change your database disk configuration:

  1. Finish configuring your partitions.
  2. At the cmc::appliance> prompt, enter dbdiskconfig.

    The following message displays:

    Current configuration:
      DoNotExceedPercentage = 90%
     
    The manager will restart and apply your changes. To exit, enter 'exit' and press Enter.
    Enter a new value for DoNotExceedPercentage (default 90):
    Please enter an inter number 0-100 or 'exit'
  3. At the prompt, enter a usage limit value between 0 and 100, and then press Enter.

    If you enter a value less than 25, the partition will be deleted when this value is reached.

    The database disk configuration value is saved, and the appliance restarts the Manager Service.

View a disk usage event

Log in to your LEM console as an administrator and click the Monitor view. The event displays in the All Events grid.

For example, if you set the OS disk partition limit as a percentage, the following event displays in the All Events grid when the limit is reached:

File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/0B0/lem-ug-set-the-disk-use-limit4_412x39.png

If you set the OS disk partition limit as a file size, the following event displays in the All Events grid when the limit is reached.

File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/0B0/lem-ug-set-the-disk-use-limit5_414x38.png

Select the event in the grid and review the content in the Event Details tab for additional information.
