SQL Monitor and NetApp

Postby acc365 » Tue Mar 06, 2012 1:53 pm

Hello,

Does anyone know how to configure this software to work with NetApp mount points, all my drives space monitors on NetApp servers only report the mount point size of 38MB and not the actual lun size?

Thanks

Andrew

Hi,

SQL Monitor examines disks using Windows performance counters ('LogicalDisk' category). We use the base value of the '% Free Space' counter to determine total size of the disk.

I would look at the Windows perf counters using the built-in Microsoft tool to see what instances appear. I know for certain that some SAN vendors do set these counters up just like Windows does for locally mounted disks or MS iSCSI initiator does.
