    Hello,

     

    If you haven't done so already, you can refer to the NOS MIB Reference Guide for the version you are running.  For NOS 7.0, the available OIDs to monitor FLASH are:

     

    swFlashDLOperStatus

    1.3.6.1.4.1.1588.2.1.1.1.1.11

    Read-only

    The operational status of the flash.

    Possible values:

    unknown (0) - Indicates that the operational status of the flash is unknown.

    swCurrent (1) - Indicates that the flash contains the current firmware image or configuration file.

    swFwUpgraded (2) - Indicates that the flash contains the upgraded image from the swFlashDLHost.0.

    swCfUploaded (3) - Indicates that the switch configuration file has been uploaded to the host.

    swCfDownloaded (4) - Indicates that the switch configuration file has been downloaded from the host.

    swFwCorrupted (5) - Indicates that the firmware in the flash of the switch is corrupted.

     

    swFlashDLAdmStatus
    1.3.6.1.4.1.1588.2.1.1.1.1.12
    Read-write
    The state of the flash.
    Possible values:
    •   swCurrent (1) - The flash contains the current firmware
    image or configuration file.
    •   swFwUpgrade (2) - The firmware in the flash is to be
    upgraded from the host specified.
    •   swCfUpload (3) - The switch configuration file is to be
    uploaded to the host specified.
    •   swCfDownload (4) - The switch configuration file is to be
    downloaded from the host specified.
    •   swFwCorrupted (5) - The firmware in the flash is corrupted.
    This value is for informational purposes only; however,
    setting swFlashDLAdmStatus to this value is not allowed.

     

    I hope this helps.

     

    Best Regards,

    Dave

    I haven't found any way of monitoring available flash space. The above MIBs tell you a bit about the status, but it doesn't look like it's possible to see how much free space is left.
