Measure, Alert on Ulimit level

Greeting LM community,


Is it possible to alert on the Linux ulimit level?

  • Hi Tom,

    Extending snmp on the systems needing this sort of functionality would be the direction I would take. See this rhel documentation for a extended explanation. You should be able to use your preferred method of monitoring ulimit from cli inside that framework, then build a datasource in LM to poll snmp to monitor it. As the integer output is limited, the script you extend with will likely want to run the math to convert to percentage instead of returning a raw count.

    Good Luck,


  • Thank you Nin. We will look into extending SNMP capability.
