Filesystem monitoring by NPS software

Starting from NPS version 7, we can now monitor Netezza mount points /nz and /nzscratch using the newly introduced system manager threshold parameters. These parameters can be defined in /nz/data/config/system.cfg

1) sysmgr.hostFileSystemUsageThresholdOneToRiseEvent (default value is 85%)
This parameter will send a notification when ever /nz or /nzscratch filesystem (mount point) usage goes above 85%.

2) sysmgr.hostFileSystemUsageThresholdTwoToRiseEvent (default value is 90%)
This parameter will send a warning message when ever /nz or /nzscratch filesystem (mount point) usage goes above 90%.

3) sysmgr.hostFileSystemUsageThresholdToStopSystem (default value is 95%)
This parameter will stop Netezza if /nz or /nzscratch usgae goes above 95% (for NPS version 7.0.0, 7.0.1 and 7.0.2). Starting from v7.0.3 system stops Netezza only if /nz file system is 95% full and not for /nzscratch.

All these parameters can take any value between 1 to 100, in percentage.
