A.5.4. Linux::Inodes

The Linux::Inodes probe monitors the specified file system and collects the following metric:
  • Inodes - The percentage of inodes currently in use.
An inode is a data structure that holds information about files in a Linux file system. There is an inode for each file, and a file is uniquely identified by the file system on which it resides and its inode number on that system.
Requirements - The Red Hat Network monitoring daemon (rhnmd) must be running on the monitored system to execute this probe.
