Environment

AppManager 4.3
AppManager 5.0.x
AppManager 6.0.x
Discovery_UNIX Knowledge Script
All UNIX Operating Systems

Situation

Cannot report statistics on NFS mounts.

Cannot add Network File System mounts as discovered objects.

Resolution

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.



Cause

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.
