DISK / 90 95 GROUP=SOMEONES_PAGER
DISK %^/.+$ 90 95 GROUP=SOMEONES_EMAIL

However, Xymon doesn't seem to honor the above DISK entries and still
marks both "/export/data/subdir/subdir2/log" and
"/export/data/subdir/subdir2/log2" as red when it hits 90%+ due to the
We recently migrated to Xymon from an aging Big Brother monitoring
infrastructure, which had bb-dftab that had to be on all clients. From my
understanding all of this is now handled on the server but the above just
doesn't seem to be working.
My questions at this point are:
- Are my regular expressions specified correctly?
- Does Xymon support full extended regular expressions? (e.g. the
difference between grep and egrep on Sun systems)
- Is my understanding of the above accurate with respect to alerts
about file system monitoring being generated on the server?
