On your solaris zones how do you monitor your filesysteme.
The problem that I have with df on the global zone is that hobbit
does not have read access to this var partition.
Therefore it is not monitored to on the global zone.

How do you proceed to monitor your disk spaces on your solaris zones?
I am thinking of patching this script.
Is there a better solution?

Thanks in advance for your answer.
