Overview

Create a way to view information on VM drive paths that are above 99% free space.

Environment

VMAN 6.0

Resolution

  1. Create a Top-N widget on the Dashboard of choice/
  2. Edit the widget and input the scope query in the first query tab:
    vm.vol.freeSpacePercentage:[99 TO *] AND vm.powerstate:PoweredOn
  3. Now add any attribute in the Columns tab. Once it is added select the column in the list and then edit the "Field" section and add the following xpath query
    /virtualMachine/diskVolume[./freeSpacePercentage>=99]/mountPoint
  4. Now the Top-N widget will display all VMs with drives that have more than 99% disk used and the corresponding drive letters on that machine.
  5. The threshold values in the queries can be adjusted to reflect different usages.
