The check_netapp_quotas script returns a list of filers where quotas are in
place and where quotas are exceeded.

This script has a nifty new feature, which is available from check_netapp_pro version 5 onwards, to list quota limits per user. Enabling the –list_users switch will make the check_netapp_quotas script print a human-readable view of both soft- and hard-limits, which are overused, per user. An example will make this clearer. First, the standard check_netapp_quotas behaviour:

./check_netapp_quotas.pl -H 192.168.105.32 
1 soft-limits on 192.168.105.32 exceeded!
datatst.fs_tst.-.-(jsturgeon)(WARNING)
| datatst.fs_tst_disk-used=53709420B;52428800;104837400;0;
...

 

An example of the extended –list_users switch:

./check_netapp_quotas.pl -H 192.168.105.32 --list_users 
1 soft-limits on 192.168.105.32 exceeded!
jsturgeon: WARNING
