Re: Sending wrong alert for disk usage

monit shows space which is available to all users - the filesystem has usually few percents of space (1-10%) reserved for root user only and as soon as the filesystem reach this limit, non-root users will fail to write to the filesystem even though the "df" may show some free space.

Hi Support,

               We are using monit for hard disk motioning. We are getting a wrong alert regarding the disk space. Actually we put 70% as threshold. But monit is sending alert at 64% telling that we are using more that 70%.

In df -h, the result is

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1             9.9G  5.7G  3.7G   61%     /

Our configuration is  as follows

check device root with path /dev/sda1
        if space usage > 70% then alert

Waiting for your reply,

Thanks and regards,
Dennis Raj
