Guest disk space custom alarm

Veeam Logoby curvoolico » Thu Mar 31, 2016 4:19 pm

Hi,

I've now upgraded to Veeam One 9 U1 and I'm creating custom Guest disk space alarms hoping that the duplicate alarms issue is solved.
When creating the alarms I came up to some questions:

The Idea is to create alarms for DB SQL VMs with absolute values conditions for the DATA disks ans relative values for the OS disk.
So I created 2 rules linked with OR.
What is the convention to input the disk name (e.g. for the OS disk) and how to exclude that name from the second rule (DATA disks) keeping the wildcard?

Thanks!

Hi Manuel and welcome to the community!
You can either type the disk(s) name(s) all post * to include all disks.
Could you specify the goal you are trying to achieve?
Thanks!

Hi and thanks! ;)

The idea is to have the rule on top applied to C: and the one below applied to all the other disks excluding C:

Thanks for the clarification!
You can`t use wildcard with exclude, so the way to go is to set names of all disks you want the rule to be applied to(everything except C:).

Thanks,

So <>C: is not possible?
And how should I declare the disks names? Can I use the drive letter? (e.g D:;E:;F:)

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to do it :(
I've tried with the top rule enabled and disabled....
Is there a way to immediately see if the alarm is being correctly applied instead of waiting some minutes to see if it fires up? I've defined big thresholds so I can test.

Manuel, disks should be specified in this format:
Code: Select all
C:\; D:\; E:\;

Hi,

Now the alarms are working but there seems to be a bug in the e-mail notification.
If the VM has some disks above the threshold they will appear marked as below the defined threshold of -1GB?

What is the threshold you set for that disk? Is it 13GB as well as for F:\ ?

Yes the same threshold to all defined disks:
d:\;e:\;f:\;g:\;h:\;i:\;j:\;k:\;l:\;m:\;n:\;o:\;p:\;q:\;r:\;s:\;t:\;u:\;v:\;w:\;x:\;y:\

But now we're receiving some more alarms and it seems ok without doing any change.
Now it just shows the "problematic" disks...

That looks like a bug.
At first because the threshold became different for the disks, secondly because it`s triggered for D:\ which has 26.5 GB of free space.
Could you contact Veeam support team to investigate the issue?
Thanks!
