Setting Disk Thresholds

Setting disk thresholds is a task you can perform in HP Systems Insight Manager. Use this task to set a disk threshold for systems in an associated list. This threshold is set on all disk volumes on the target system.

To set disk thresholds, select ConfigureDisk ThresholdsSet Disk Thresholds. To select target systems, refer to Using Tasks - Creating a Task, and to specify the disk thresholds settings, refer to Disk Thresholds - Setting Disk Thresholds for more information.

Guidelines for Setting Thresholds

  • When you save the thresholds, disabled thresholds are deleted. A Critical Disk Percent Usage Threshold can never go above 99% or lower than a warning threshold plus 3%. Therefore, if the warning threshold is 85%, the valid range for the critical threshold is 88% to 99%.

  • A Reset Critical Disk Percent Usage Threshold must drop below the reset value before the threshold is rearmed. This setting prevents the threshold from being sent multiple times if the variable fluctuates near the threshold value.

  • The Warning Disk Percent Usage Threshold should be less than the critical threshold. A warning threshold must drop below the reset value before the warning threshold is rearmed. This setting prevents the threshold from being sent multiple times if the variable fluctuates near the threshold value. The minimum difference between the value and the reset value must be greater than or equal to 2%.

  • When you save the thresholds, disabled thresholds are deleted. A Reset Warning Disk Percent Usage Threshold can never be higher than the critical threshold minus 3%. For example, if the critical threshold is 95%, the valid range for the warning threshold is 6% to 92%.

  • The Agent Polling Interval value is the polling interval in seconds that determines how often the agents check if the current values exceed the threshold. A common value is 120 seconds.

Removing Disk Thresholds

Removing disk thresholds is another task that you can perform in HP Systems Insight Manager. Use this task to remove disk thresholds from systems in an associated list. This task only removes disk thresholds that were set by HP Systems Insight Manager or by browsing directly to the HP Insight Management Agents. Any thresholds set by Insight Manager (WIN32), including disk thresholds, are not removed by this task.

To remove disk thresholds, select ConfigureDisk ThresholdsRemove All Disk Thresholds. To select target systems, refer to Using Tasks - Creating a Task for more information. After the target systems are selected, click [Schedule] to schedule when the task will run, or click [Run Now] to run the task immediately. The All Scheduled Tasks page is displayed.
