Alerting On Esx Host File System Drives

by Jan 29, 2010


I was wondering how to set disk capacity alerts on the datastores of the ESX host(s). I can see that the drive space usage is being monitored/gathered, because I can see the Used% for each datastore under the “Current File System Stats” section of the Quick snapshot for the ESX host.

I know that multiple hosts can have access to the same datastore, but it would be nice to be able to alert on this stat. Is it possible to alert on this statistic and if so how is it done?
