Looking for something unique here. I am familiar with the NetApp_Cluster_Snapshots datasource (MHNTRC). I would like to setup an alert if

1. No detected snapshot taken in the last XX hours (Ensure Snapshot/SnapManager is working properly)
2. Snapshot exists greater than XX hours (Retention)

Thoughts, guidance?

Hi Will,

For #2, on the latest version of that datasource there is a field for snapshot_age_hours, which, by default doesn't have an alert threshold but if applied could alert if a particular snapshot is over a certain age.  #1 is a bit more tricky since it would require an aggregate measure across multiple instances.  It could be done with a scripted datasource but but the good news is we are working on an upcoming feature that will be a much better way to solve this.  More to come when we are ready to release.

Thanks @Forrest Evans - LM.

#2 - Roger - I could use the snapshot_age_hours and set an alert on an individual cluster or client, based on ideal retention.

#1 - Is there any logic available now that would provide a warning if there is NO snapshot age that is less than 24 hours (1440 minutes) ?
