High disk space utilization for Cisco Nexus




Many systems store vital configuration and operational data on their storage devices at different mount points and on different disk devices. It is important to monitor the usage of the different storage devices to ensure they do not fill up and cause issues in the on-going operation of the system.

Remediation Steps

Determine the cause for the high disk usage of the listed file systems.

How does this work?

This script logs into the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and uses the "show system internal flash" command to collect information about the device's file systems.

Why is this important?

Check the utilization percentage of each of the diffenet file systems on the device. If the free space gets too low an alert will be triggered.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

It is not possible to poll this data through SNMP or Syslog.
