Build Status Gem Version Dependency Status Community Slack



This checks does the following checks against one or more zpools.

  • Check state
  • Check vdev errors
  • Check capacity
  • Check that a scrub has been run recently

The following flags can be used to configure the checks.

  • -z, --zpool What zpool to check. If omitted, we check all zpools.
  • -c, --capacity-warn Capacity threshold for when to warn. (default 80)
  • -C, --capacity-crit Capacity threshold for when to crit. (default 90)
  • -s, --scrubbing-interval Warn when it is more than this number of days since last scrub. (default 7)


Installation and setup


At this time ideas for additional checks/metrics would be very much appreciated.

I have a few ideas that would be nice:

  • Check for zpool state
  • Check for vdev errors
  • Check for pool capacity
  • Check that disks have been scrubbed recently
  • Metric for disk utilization
