Issue/Introduction

When creating a Disk(s) (Enhanced) profile, when unit is set to MB (instead of percent) It is not possible to enter more than 5 digits in the value field.

For large disk (>3TB) customer requires entries with 6 digits

 

 

 

 

Environment

Release : 20.1

UIM 9.2 / 20.1 / 20.3

CDM 6.50-MC

cdm_mcs_templates 6.50

Component : UIM - MON_CONFIG_SERVICE

Resolution

The MCS CDM Template does not support monitoring large disk (>3TB).

The recommendation for fulfilling the use case of monitoring large disk (>3TB) is using the "Alarm Policies" for threshold configuration.

Manage Alarms with Centralized Alarm Policies

 

Example:

 

The same is applicable to NIC Monitoring. In the MCS profile alarms for NIC Monitoring profile, it is only possible to insert 5 digits for traffic threshold. Use the Alarm policies in the OC to be able to set a threshold that has more than 5 digits bytes. 

Additional Information

NOTE: The ability to set the alarm threshold and TOT directly into the MCS Profile is determined by a key in the mon_config_service probe. This is: "policy_mode_enabled = true". 

By default policy_mode_enabled is set to true and the alarms and TOT MCS GUI is not visible. When policy_mode_enabled = false, it is possible to set alarms in MCS, with the limitations discussed in this KB.
