Our new DiskCount check counts available disks on a system. This can be quite handy when setting a filter, e.g. only counting SSD drives in the spare container. This way, one can use thresholds to send warning messages as soon as the number of spare SSD disks falls below a certain threshold.

In contrast to the previously available check check_netapp_spare, DiskCount can be configured with a detailed set of criteria for its alert messages.


./check_netapp_pro.pl DiskCount ... ‑‑container_type=spare ‑‑disk_type=SSD ‑w 1 ‑c 1
NETAPP_PRO DISKCOUNT OK - 1 disk with matching criteria found.
