Cannot report statistics on NFS mounts.

Cannot add Network File System mounts as discovered objects.


NetIQ Technical Support has identified this issue as a known limitation to AppManager.  NetIQ is working to resolve this issue.

This KB article will be updated with any details or information relating to this limitation.


NFS does not respond to many file system monitoring tools, such as iostat, and does not report information such as throughput or I/O. The AppManager UNIX modules use file system monitoring tools, and so AppManager does not work with NFS mounts.
