We are pleased to announce that check_netapp_pro has a new autosize volume mode check feature for you. This is a check which was requested by several clients to discover whether a autosize-volume is set to grow, to grow or to shrink, or whether autosize-mode is off altogether.

A demonstration will suffice to clarify how the tool is used:

./check_netapp_pro.pl AutosizeMode -H filer --ok_mode=grow_shrink
NETAPP_PRO AUTOSIZEMODE OK - 2 volumes checked for autosize-mode=grow_shrink
node01 vol1: grow_shrink
node01 vol2: grow_shrink

This new check will be available in the next stable release. To keep an eye on what is available with each new release,  please check out the release history.
