the probe documentation provides no guidance on how to set the Disk State alarm.
As per the metrics page these are the alarms with a string value:
Disk State - String The operational state of the disk.
Mode - String Indicates the fast cache mode.
State (For Fast Cache) - String The face cache state.
State (For PSU) - String The state of the power supply unit.
State (For Fan) - String The state of the fan.
State (For LCC) - String The state of the Link Control Cards.
State (For IOMODULE) - String The state of the Input Output module.
State (For Management Module) - String The state of the Management Module.
State (For SPS) - String The state of the Standby Power Supplies.
State (For MirrorView) - String The state of the MirrorView.
LUN Expansion Enabled - String Indicates whether LUN expansion is enabled for this RAID group or not.
Statistics Logging - String Indicates whether statistics logging is enabled or not.
Relocation Status - String Indicates whether the thin pool is currently relocating. (1=Relocating)
As a 'string' it will be text instead of a number and the text string is sent from the storage device. The valid values are available from the Clariion documentation.
Another way to find out is to look at a sample output file.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\probes\storage\clariion\output\...._getall_-array_...txt
A sample shows: SP A State: Present
Setting the Disk State threshold for != Present, produces the expected results.
This same method can be used for Mode, LUN Expansion Enabled, Statistics Logging, & Relocation Status.
