How to monitor disk usage on a Unix server where Splunk is installed without using the Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux?

Communicator

I need to monitor one or more UNIX filesystems on the server where Splunk is installed. Can I do it without the Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux which is available in Splunkbase?

Look into using the DMC to monitor disk space, and other important Splunk Deployment Metrics:

Thanks, I found the information I wanted in DMC.

I am trying to setup alerts based on Disk usage value, in the alert I am selecting alert condition as custom and putting following in search condition - search "Disk Usage (%)">10

I have scheduled this search to run every hour, even manually running it is not generating any alerts.
Where am I missing?

did you enable the rule? even then you edit to choose the % the rule is disabled by default.
did you setup additional actions? by default it only add the alert to trigerrred alerts. you can add more actions in advance edit -> actions ->edit
