This article describes how to monitor volumes with mount points accurately when WMI is not available.



SAM version 6.2.3 and earlier


Many SNMP servers may not correctly reflect volume size when the volume contains mount points. When Orion polls the volume details over SNMP the data may not be accurate. In such a scenario using a SAM script monitor or WMI to monitor will allow for more accurate polling by circumventing the SNMP server on the device.


SAM allows for monitoring mount points on Windows servers through WMI.


When using custom script monitors in SAM
and the samples in C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\APM\SampleScriptMonitors\LinuxScripts can be of help with the creation process.
