How do I know if my hard disk C is full?

I made an alert for the hard disk, if its use reaches more than 90%, it sends me an alert on the e-mail, but the problem is that some servers contain a C disk and a D disk, and when one of the disks is full, it does not send me an alert because the other disk has space, so how can I separate the disks from Some in order to warn when any disk is full of them

Hello. 

I believe that the best way to gather information from guest OSes is to use 3rd-party monitoring software and collect OS data using SNMP or using installed agents.

Hi,

The UVM disk space utilization monitored by Prism is relative to allocated disk space including vdisks and volume groups. Prism do not have visibility inside the guest OS hence cannot let u know per disk or partitions.

As suggested you can use any third-party monitoring tools like solarwinds, manageengine, prtg, zabbix,  etc. which can monitor the Nutanix platform and guest VMs as well.

I agree with the others about monitoring… There are free (or at least used to be free) SNMP and WMI based solutions that will monitor the percentage of space used or the amount of space free. Some of them are Nagios, LibreNMS and Zenoss Core. Both have commercial options, but if you want to go commercial I’d recommend PRTG over them.
