thanks for your mail. Good ideas for enhancements are always welcome,
and it certainly makes sense to be able to split the disk-status reports
the way you propose.
I was planning this feature, in a more general fashion. It can equally
well be used for other of the combined status-reports, e.g. "procs"
would be an obvious candidate for splitting up this way. So it is
something that I plan on implementing via an enhancement to the
analysis.cfg file. Right now my plan is to add a STATUS definition at a
level above the current HOST/PAGE/GROUP ... definitions, something like:
DISK / 70 90
DISK /var 80 95
DISK %^/oradata 95 98
DISK %rollback 60 90
DISK /var/lib/mysql 80 90
so you can define the criteria that trigger a "disk_db" status by
selecting on hostnames or any of the other criteria, and then defining
the tests that go into the "disk_db" status.
This would also allow you to combine tests that are now separate, e.g.
all tests regarding a database instance:
DISK ^/oradata/dbw1 80 90
I expect this to be ready for the 5.0 release, since this release
involves a lot of enhancements to the xymond_client / analysis.cfg code.
I have cross-posted this mail to the normal Xymon mailing list, since I
expect there may be others who are interested in this. I hope you don't
