Can DFM be used to monitor maxdirsize is reached events?

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • OnCommand Unified Manager Core Package 5.x
  • Data ONTAP 7-Mode


DFM has the events:

  • maxdirsize-limit-nearly-reached
  • maxdirsize-limit-reached


In order to alert on this, DFM needs to be configured as a traphost for the controller. When the event occurs in Ontap it will notify DFM via snmp which will generate the event.


To configure DFM as a traphost for the controller.

  1. controller> snmp traphost add <IP address of the DFM server>.
  2. controller> snmp init 1


You will then need to confirm an alarm based on the events.
