uberAgent: Why don't I see any disk utilization parameter being reported?

HI

For my uberAgent setup, I don't see any Disk utilization parameter being reported. By utilization, I mean % free or used space on Disks .

I see on the Uberagent website:

Machine
The following metrics are collected per machine:

  • Disk utilization in percent

However, I don't see it under Uberagent's own related Splunk Events listing:

Source type:
uberAgent:System:SystemPerformanceSummary
Field list:
CPUUsagePercent, RAMUsagePercent, RAMUsageGB, IOPSRead, IOPSWrite, IOCountRead, IOCountWrite, IOMBRead, IOMBWrite, IOLatencyMsRead, IOLatencyMsWrite, IOPercentDiskTime, NetUtilizationPercent, KernelPagedMB, KernelNonPagedMB, HandleCount, ThreadCount

uberAgent does not collect information about disk space usage. That is available via Splunk's Universal Forwarder.

When the documentation talks about "disk utilization" it refers to the disk's performance, i.e. how much of the time the disk is busy. The underlying field is called IOPercentDiskTime.

Right thanks helge!

Since we already have uberagent, didnt want to add single perfmon input for the same.

Thanks for the confirmation!
