If you want to add to what is being reported in an alert, you can of course, reverse engineer the monitor and add more to the script and run it in a private MP. Microsoft Corporation

bradje, Do you by chance have a document on what you did to get this....I have opened a RFH w/ Microsoft for this! A bit upset that in the MP guide nowhere does it say that they changed this! So unfortunately we found out the hard way and it is almost impossible to revert back to the previous version due to the Base OS MP being tied to so many others! Anything would be great!!!!! Thanks,Matt

there is undocumented way to override alert description. First posted by Marius Sutara. Here is two links describing steps. Worth trying. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mariussutara/archive/2008/07/17/dynamic-alert-settings-for-monitor-which-never-had-any-done-thru-overrides.aspx http://devcentral.f5.com/weblogs/jbalog/archive/2009/10/08/overriding-alert-monitor-messages-in-the-f5-management-pack.aspx

Hi Pavel, Unfortunately these are not specific enough for my needs (i.e. they are over my head!). I do not understand what I can include in the xml that will let me see %free for System and non-System drives. Maybe I just need to write the monitors for C: though Z: with the familiar gui available. I wish they hadn't changed what was working nicely. Thx anyway for the links. JB

Thx Rob. Yes, my question is that....How to have this value in the alert, now that the latest MP has taken that away. Cheers, JB

bradje, thanks for pointing to this. We still run old MP version and do find old style alert description extremely useful. Why did Microsoft make decision to cut alert description removing Disk size values? I can't imagine any valuable reason.

Hi, Has anyone got steps as to how to rewrite the monitor for disk space so that System and non-system drives appear in the input tabs. It only let's me choose C: or D: or E: etc as opposed to system/non-system. (I want the alert to show the amount of disk space free in the alert, which the current monitor does not allow)....That's progress! Thx, John Bradshaw

As it will only show the amount of free space when the alert was generated and it doesn't update this anymore. You need to check the context for the latest value of free space on a drive.Rob Korving http://jama00.wordpress.com/
