FoldersΒΆ

The folders plugin allows user, through the configuration file, to monitor size of a predefined folders list.

If the size cannot be computed, a '?' (non-existing folder) or a '!' (permission denied) is displayed.

Each item is defined by:

  • path: absolute path to monitor (mandatory)
  • careful: optional careful threshold (in MB)
  • warning: optional warning threshold (in MB)
  • critical: optional critical threshold (in MB)

Up to 10 items can be defined.

For example, if you want to monitor the /tmp folder, the following definition should do the job:

[folders]
folder_1_path=/tmp
folder_1_careful=2500
folder_1_warning=3000
folder_1_critical=3500

In client/server mode, the list is defined on the server side.

Warning

Do NOT define folders containing lot of files and subfolders.
