How to Configure Disk Space Monitoring

適用於: Exchange Server, Operations Manager 2007

The Exchange Server 2003 Management Pack contains 2 monitors that enable you to monitor Disk Space in two different ways. The monitors are targeted to the “Exchange Database Storage” class.

The first monitor, “Disk Space Monitor” is enabled by default. It is a 2-state monitor and always raises “Warning” events which are alerted on by a separate rule. State for Exchange Database Storage only changes if the Error thresholds are met (there are overrides that enable you to set the appropriate thresholds).

The second monitor, “Disk Space Monitor (3 States) is disabled by default. It supports the same override options as the “Disk Space Monitor”. It is a 3-state monitor and it will generate Warning or Error events based on which thresholds are exceeded. It will also change state of the Exchange Database Storage class appropriately.

Depending on which method you want to use for Disk Space Monitoring, you should enable the appropriate monitor for all instances of Exchange Database Storage. Note that only one of the monitors should be enabled. If you have made overrides to one of the monitors and want to switch to using the other monitor, you should apply the same overrides to the other monitor before enabling it.
