Samples

To check the size of the C:drive and make sure it has atleast 10% free space:

check_drivesize "crit=free<10%" drive=c:
L     client CRITICAL: c:: 205GB/223GB used
L     client  Performance data: 'c: free'=18GB;0;22;0;223 'c: free %'=8%;0;9;0;100

To check the size of all the drives and make sure it has atleast 10% free space:

check_drivesize "crit=free<10%" drive=*
L     client OK: All drives ok
L     client  Performance data: 'C:\ free'=18GB;0;2;0;223 'C:\ free %'=8%;0;0;0;100 'D:\ free'=18GB;0;4;0;465 'D:\ free %'=3%;0;0;0;100 'M:\ free'=83GB;0;27;0;2746 'M:\ free %'=3%;0;0;0;100

To check the size of all the drives and display all values, not just problems:

check_drivesize drive=* --show-all
L     client CRITICAL: c:: 205GB/223GB used
L     client  Performance data: 'c: free'=18GB;0;22;0;223 'c: free %'=8%;0;9;0;100

To check the size of all the drives and return the value in gigabytes. By default units on performance data will be scaled to “something apropriate”:

check_drivesize "perf-config=*(unit:g)"
L        cli CRITICAL: CRITICAL C:\: 208.147GB/223.471GB used, D:\: 399.607GB/465.759GB used
L        cli  Performance data: 'C:\ used'=0.00019g;0.00017;0.00019;0;0.00021 'C:\ used %'=93%;79;89;0;100 'D:\ used'=0.00038g;0.00035;0.00039;0;0.00044 'D:\ used %'=85%;79;89;0;100 'E:\ used'=0g;0;0;0;0 '\\?\Volume{d458535f-27c7-11e4-be66-806e6f6e6963}\ used'=0g;0;0;0;0 '\\?\Volume{d458535f-27c7-11e4-be66-806e6f6e6963}\ used %'=33%;79;89;0;100

To check the size of a mounted volume (c:volumne_test) and make sure it has 1M free space warn if free space is less then 10M:

check_drivesize "crit=free<1M" "warn=free<10M" drive=c:\\volumne_test
C:: Total: 74.5G - Used: 71.2G (95%) - Free: 3.28G (5%) < critical,C:;5%;10;5;

To check the size of all volumes and make sure they have 1M space free:

check_drivesize "crit=free<1M" drive=all-volumes
L     client OK: All drives ok
L     client  Performance data: 'C:\ free'=18GB;0;2;0;223 'C:\ free %'=8%;0;0;0;100 'D:\ free'=18GB;0;4;0;465 'D:\ free %'=3%;0;0;0;100 'E:\ free'=0B;0;0;0;0 'F:\ free'=0B;0;0;0;0

To check the size of all fixed and network drives and make sure they have at least 1gig free space:

check_drivesize "crit=free<1g" drive=* "filter=type in ('fixed', 'remote')"
L     client OK: All drives ok
L     client  Performance data: 'C:\ free'=18GB;0;2;0;223 'C:\ free %'=8%;0;0;0;100 'D:\ free'=18GB;0;4;0;465 'D:\ free %'=3%;0;0;0;100 'M:\ free'=83GB;0;27;0;2746 'M:\ free %'=3%;0;0;0;100

To check all fixed and network drives but ignore C and F:

check_drivesize "crit=free<1g" drive=* "filter=type in ('fixed', 'remote')" exclude=C:\\ exclude=D:\\
L     client OK: All drives ok
L     client  Performance data: 'M:\ free'=83GB;0;27;0;2746 'M:\ free %'=3%;0;0;0;100

To checking UNC Paths. Please note that I need to use \ to escape the back-slashes from check_nrpe you can escape using ‘ instead which is simpler:

check_drivesize drive=\\\\medin-ds\\data\\ "crit=free<10%"
L     client CRITICAL: \\medin-ds\data\: 2.6TB/2.68TB used
L     client  Performance data: '\\medin-ds\data\ free'=83GB;0;274;0;2746 '\\medin-ds\data\ free %'=3%;0;9;0;100

Important

Please note that UNC paths are only avalible in each session meaning a user mounted share will not be visible to NSClient++ (since services run in their own session). But as long as NSClient++ can access the share it still works as long as you specify the UNC path. In other words the following will NOT work:

check_drivesize drive=m:

But the following will:

check_drivesize drive=\\myserver\\mydrive

Important

Do not forget the trailing .

Default via NRPE:

check_nrpe --host 192.168.56.103 --command check_drivesize
C:\: 205GB/223GB used, D:\: 448GB/466GB used, M:\: 2.6TB/2.68TB used|'C:\ used'=204GB;44;22;0;223 'C:\ used %'=91%;19;9;0;100 'D:\ used'=447GB;93;46;0;465...

Samples

Order is somewhat important but mainly in the fact that some operations are more costly then others. For instance line_count requires us to read and count the lines in each file so choosing between the following: Fast version:

filter=creation < -2d and line_count > 100

Show version:

filter=line_count > 100 and creation < -2d

The first one will be significantly faster if you have a thousand old files and 3 new ones. But looking at the following:

filter=creation < -2d and size > 100k

Swapping them would not be noticeable.

Checking file versions:

check_files path=c:/foo/ pattern=*.exe "filter=version != '1.0'" "detail-syntax=%(filename): %(version)" "warn=count > 1" show-all
L        cli WARNING: WARNING: 0/11 files (check_nrpe.exe: , nscp.exe: 0.5.0.16, reporter.exe: 0.5.0.16)
L        cli  Performance data: 'count'=11;1;0

Using the line count with limited recursion:

check_files path=c:/windows pattern=*.txt max-depth=1 "filter=line_count gt 100" "detail-syntax=%(filename): %(line_count)" "warn=count>0" show-all
L        cli WARNING: WARNING: 0/1 files (AsChkDev.txt: 328)
L        cli  Performance data: 'count'=1;0;0

Check file sizes:

check_files path=c:/windows pattern=*.txt "detail-syntax=%(filename): %(size)" "warn=size>20k" max-depth=1
L        cli WARNING: WARNING: 1/6 files (AsChkDev.txt: 29738)
L        cli  Performance data: 'AsChkDev.txt size'=29.04101KB;20;0 'AsDCDVer.txt size'=0.02246KB;20;0 'AsHDIVer.txt size'=0.02734KB;20;0 'AsPEToolVer.txt size'=0.08789KB;20;0 'AsToolCDVer.txt size'=0.05273KB;20;0 'csup.txt size'=0.00976KB;20;0
