Diskspace Monitor

This monitor checks the available and used space on all hard disks in the system. All hard disks present in the system are automatically checked. New disks are automatically detected. One event specifying the maximum size and the used size is generated per disk. The Disk Space Monitor runs continuously based on an interval set in the configuration.

DiskSpace Monitor Properties

Check Interval

File Configuration field:
nSleepTime
Description:

This is the interval in which the service status is checked. This period is specified in milliseconds. This monitor checks the available and used space on all hard disks in the system. All hard disks present in the system are automatically checked. New disks are automatically detected. One event specifying the maximum size and the used size is generated per disk. The Disk Space Monitor runs continuously based on an interval set in the configuration.

The default is 60,000 ms, which is one minute. This should be sufficient for a typical server. If you would like to have the disk space check run less often, you might for example use the value of 3,600,000 for one hour (or a multiple for multiple hours).

For performance reasons, we do not recommend using an interval of less than 30,000 ms.
