I'm sure it is, but I don't.  You would probably have to custom script something with NPRE.

A couple other ideas is installing check_mk on Dom0. I'm a big fan of check_mk. Another

thought is if your hardware has an agent for XenServer you might can monitor disk space

through that. And one non-nagios thought. I remember having a script that added an 

entry into the logs so you end up getting an email alert from the server.

Thanks...has someone already used this.
The implementation is not yet quite clear to me.

We use check_mk, a nagios fork, with SNMP. Via SNMP you´ll get basic information about Dom0, but not about the VMs.

Our main goal is monitoirng the SR-capacity and with vendor supplements installed, monitoring the hardware and raid-set, also through SNMP

It´s just setting up SNMP on XS, opening the firewall and oyur done. Ok, do a snmp-walk or have a XS-ready check.

Try this guide: https://support.auvik.com/hc/en-us/articles/209605153-How-to-enable-SNMP-on-Citrix-Xen-hypervisors

You can adopt it to any monitoring solution easyly

Do you use check_mk Linuix agents in your Dom0? Do you get more information as with just SNMP and chck_mk?

I think with just standard SNMP mib you can only get interface statistics. With Check_MK

you could get disk usage, memory usage, etc, etc. I have never installed on Dom0. I use

Fujistu and they have an agent just for their hardware for monitoring the hardware. I poll

it with Nagios and can get notifications about hardware such as a drive issue when going

that route.
