I need to set up a rule in Spectrum to monitor the C:\ drive for less than 2G of free space. I want this to be a global rule in my environment. Has anyone done this?
Have you tried going into the system resources of the device and using the monitor file system?
Thanks for the reply. I have over 9000 devices I need to set this up for so
doing it individually would be very time consuming. I would like to be able
to set up a global rule that would apply to all my devices.

You need to create a disk monitor ruleset available from the Locater->System & Application Montoring->All Monitoring Rules search. When you run the search, it will return no models found (assuming none have been created). On the upper right is the “Create Rule Set” button – the icon with the plus sign on the papers. Click that, give it a name, and then select it and scroll down to the Component Detail. In there you can then click ADD on the disk monitor and create the threshold (screenshot below).
Thanks for the reply. I have set up quite a few rulesets for disk
monitoring using the percentage option. The options when you create a
ruleset is percentage by default. I can open the drop-down and choose
GBytes, but I want to know when the device has less than 2G free. A server
can have terabytes of data and setting the utilization threshold to
something like 98 can still leave a lot of Gb left on the device.
I can understand your need…Unfortunately the functionality does not allow for that. I would suggestion opening an ER on the idea wall.
Where can I access the idea wall?
The idea wall can be accessed by logging into CA Infrastructure Management then click on the Actions link and select Create an Idea.
Also, in case it isn’t known…you then apply that ruleset to a global collection that contains the models you want the ruleset to apply to…
If you use CA-SystemEDGE you should be able to setup this alert.
In case you do,
This is the default entry in the sysedge.cf
You could simply add a monitor for,
monitor devTableEntry "c:" devFreeSpace 17 0x0 300 absolute <= xxxx 'File system remaining space''FileSystem' 'C:' 'PercentUsed' warning
devFreeSpace mib attribute Free Space - Number of available MB on the file system. Note that this may not include space reserved for the super user. Sysedge oid .188.8.131.52.4.1.5184.108.40.206.7.1.18
I dont know if this will help. But hopefully it does You can do a monitor on any oid and attribute, and the absolute/delta says to evaluate the actual (absolute) or change (delta) in the attribute for the poll.
Most of our devices are windows servers and we just use the snmp service and not the sysedge agent. We have over 9000
devices we need to get this set up for, so a manual one by one would take too much time to set up.
