Configure warning threshold for tablespace usage

Description

If one of the database tablespaces usage exceeds the DB2TableSpaceUsageWarn threshold, but none of them exceeds the DB2TableSpaceUsageCrit threshold, the check status is set to Warning, unless the DB2TableSpaceExCrit threshold is exceeded for some tablespace.

You can define the threshold either in percentage of the total size of the resource, or in KB, MB, or GB values of the remaining free space. In the first case, the parameter gets effective if the usage measured in % of the total space is higher than the defined threshold. In the second case the parameter gets effective if the remaining free space is lower than the defined threshold.

SYBLogBackupExclude

Excludes databases from SYB_LogBackup check

Description

You may use this parameter to exclude databases from being checked by SYB_LogBackup. The names of the databases is defined in a comma separated list. Leading and trailing white spaces before or after the comma character are gently ignored.

By default, many system databases are already excluded by default. However, databases are still checked for full transaction log, no matter if excluded or not.

SYBLogExWarn

Configure Warning threshold for log spaces exhaustion

Description

If the predicted point in time when the log space is exceeded is within the upcoming SYBLogExWarn hours, but not within the upcoming SYBLogExCrit hours, the check status of SYB_LogSpaces is set to Warning, unless the SYBLogUsageCrit threshold is exceeded.

SYBLogUsageCrit

Configures the Critical threshold for Sybase ASE data space usage check SYB_LogSpaces

Description

If the data space usage of a database exceeds the SYBLogUsageCrit threshold, the check status is set to Critical.

You can define the threshold either in percentage of the total size of the resource, or in KB, MB, or GB values of the remaining free space. In the first case, the parameter gets effective if the usage measured in % of the total space is higher than the defined threshold. In the second case the parameter gets effective if the remaining free space is lower than the defined threshold.

SYBLogUsageWarn

Configures the Warning threshold for Sybase ASE log space usage check SYB_LogSpaces

Description

If the data space usage of a database exceeds the SYBLogUsageWarn threshold the check status is set to Warning, unless the SYBLogUsageCrit threshold is exceeded.

You can define the threshold either in percentage of the total size of the resource, or in KB, MB, or GB values of the remaining free space. In the first case, the parameter gets effective if the usage measured in % of the total space is higher than the defined threshold. In the second case the parameter gets effective if the remaining free space is lower than the defined threshold.
