This is a quick-and-dirty way to get NetApp disk utilization into Nagios via the nsca add-on, so use it in that spirit. Installation procedure is:

  1. Connect to NetApp filer GUI, FilerView, Security, rsh access. Add your Nagios host name, user nagios (for example).

  2. Select a convenient Linux host from which to monitor and create a monitoring account, e.g. nagios. From the command line, test rsh access using rsh filer_name df -g. You should receive the df output. If not, resolve the rsh problem.

  3. Install the nsca add-on per instructions in\_Setup.pdf.pdf

  4. Install the attached scripts and netapp.awk and update for local conditions. Test from command line.

  5. Set up a cron to run every 5 minutes.
