File system (NetApp) service

The File System (NetApp) service monitors the status and usage of the file system of a NetApp SAN.

NetApp devices respond to SNMP version 1 and 2c queries. However, on large devices the Physical Disk and Volume counters can exceed the limit of the 32-bit counters used by SNMP version 1. This results in negative values, and a misconfigured service in N-able N-central. For NetApp devices, use SNMP version 2c whenever possible.
