[Xymon] NFS mounts

The client must be configured to send the file information to the server so that it can be analyzed by the server.  You’ve only done the server side analysis part, you still need to configure the client to send the information back to the server.  That’s done in client-local.cfg on the xymon server.  That config is downloaded from the server by the client at the end of each data transmission. This is true for any check of any file.  The NFS check you’re talking about is for overall disk usage.

Subject: [Xymon] NFS mounts

This is a general/first time question about NFS mounted file systems.

If I understand correctly (please correct me if I am wrong), by default Xymon Linux client doesn't check NFS mounts.

I had a user ask to monitor a FILE which is on an NFS mounted filesystem.  However, after adding FILE to analysis.cfg on the Xymon server, it still doesn't show up for this host (been watching for over 30-minutes and it still says "No files checked".

So, how do I get this to work?
