We have discovered an issue in the new 6.x versions of check_netapp_pro if a getter contacts the new RESTful API of NetApp. These getters require an explicit --stm (e.g. --stm=1h). Otherwise the collected storefiles are not deleted and could fill up the monitoring servers disk.

Again this does affect installations only if both of the following conditions are met:

  • the plugins version is 6.x 
  • the plugins getter contacts the RESTful API of the filer (Ontap 9.6/9.7)

In the next version of the plugins we will set a reasonable default.
