The size is in blocks. The maximum size can be found with a MIB-browser.
Be aware that the number of bytes/block can change from one disk to
another: I have servers with 512bytes/block, 4096bytes/block and even
65536bytes/block on their disks. The number of bytes/block can also be
found with the MIB-browser (.<instance>)

Subject: [mrtg] Simple doubt about max disk size....

Allright, to monitor disk usage of a win2000 server, I am using the
config template from somix:

Top of Form 1

# WIN2000 Disk Utilization. Based on MIB II Host MIB.
 # MIB reports on 4096 byte blocks. That is why we multiply by 4  #  #
Example CFGNAME : [DEVICE NAME]-microsoft_win2k_disk_util

Bottom of Form 1

but I am somewhat confused with one parameter:


this size must be in bytes, megabytes, block,...?
My disk has 20GB, wich value should I put there?

Thanks a lot in advance.
