View Full Version : Ability to exclude one or more filesystem monitoring

23rd April 2009, 12:32
I have this server filesystem (RPM I from www.ovh.com):

Filesystem Type Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 ext3 9.7G 1.3G 7.9G 14% /
tmpfs tmpfs 245M 0 245M 0% /lib/init/rw
udev tmpfs 10M 24K 10M 1% /dev
tmpfs tmpfs 245M 0 245M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/root cramfs 4.6M 4.6M 0 100% /initrd

I need exclude "/dev/root" from monitoring because i have a permanent error on "overview".

Thanks in advance.

is it a flash - card?
if yes i think it is better, if i exclude all partitons with file-system type = "cramfs" because this file-system type is always 100% full.

is this correct? (sorry for my "stupid" question, but i didn't have this type of FS at my computer as i developed the monitor...)

Hello, "/dev/root" is not a flash card. OVH.com provides low-cost dedicated servers with iSCSI storage (or NFS), server don`t have physical hard drives, the swap is located on a pendrive) and also the possibility of a netboot kernel. "/dev/root" seems that it is a network filesystem that containst kernel.

Ask if you need more help

Thanks in advance, sorry for my english.

Device /dev/root is a ramdisk mounted on /initrd. Normally that's not needed after booting. Just unount it and you should be done with it. Perhaps uncomment it in /etc/fstab.

(as root)
umount /initrd

till and i decided to remove the cramfs file - type from the monitor at the next version of ispconfig.
