How to enable notifications for Low Disk Space


Low disk space notifications are critical notifications that nobody wants to see but wishes to receive at the same time. They can help you identify filled storage devices and avoid future problems.


In order to configure this notification, go to the "Server Admin > Endpoint Policies > Create Endpoint Policy > System > Storage" section of the Web App.




You can also configure this setting on the VSAX Agent itself. However, the Web App Policy settings (if applied to the same machine) will always take precedence over the individual agent settings.


Also, Policies are naturally more convenient for applying such monitoring rules, as they can be applied to multiple machines simultaneously.


To configure this setting on the Agent, go to Notifications -> Storage -> Local Disk Space -> Check the Send a notification on low disk drive space -> Add





And configure it:




Monitoring low disk space is possible using a percentile value or a fixed amount of megabytes (1 gigabyte is 1024 megabytes). Priority field controls the priority of the low disk space notification.


Note: Disk Drive represents the partition not the actual disk. Free Space Limit represents the threshold for the notification.
