Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide

Monitoring the Message Store

It is recommended that message store disk usage not exceed 75% capacity. You can monitor message store disk usage by configuring the following alarm attributes using the configutil utility:

By setting these parameters, you can specify how often the system should monitor disk space and under what circumstances the system should send a warning. For example, if you want the system to monitor disk space every 600 seconds, specify the following command:

configutil -o alarm.diskavail.msgalarmstatinterval -v 600

If you want to receive a warning whenever available disk space falls below 20%, specify the following command:

configutil -o alarm.diskavail.msgalarmthreshold -v 20

Refer to Table 27–6 for more information on these parameters.
