Disk space usage with SNMP, drive with shadow copies.
Posted on 2013-11-04
When using SNMP to check disk space it reports the true used space. Meaning if the *data* I care about on my drive is 30% of the drive and I have shadow copies that take up another 60%, SNMP reports 90% usage.
Since Windows will allow the shadow copies to be ovewritten as needed, is there any way to track the non-shadow copy data separately (using SNMP)? Or if someone happens to be familiar with the monitoring product we use, some other way it could do it.
Operating System: Windows 2008 R2 SP1, latest patches
