    Hello,

    please is there anywhere in WHM or in /scripts/ a way to get notified when my WHM server disk space is low?
    I am not talking about cpanel account disk space quotas, but server disk space.

    Thank you

    In your WHM >>tweak setting >> you need to enable :
    Account system disk usage “warn” percentage [?]
    Threshold percentage to warn the system admin (via email) that the system disk usage is considered to be in the “warn” state.

    If you enable this it should send your the disk space warning.

    Thank You, i have this setting enabled and set to 82.5500 %
    But i am not aware of any warning e-mail being sent to me by the server. I found that e-mail should contain phrase "Drive Warning", so i searched my mailbox (also trash and spam) and last e-mail i received was 5 years ago. I also looked up my filters if i am not filtering that e-mail out, but probably no.
    I would like not to miss this e-mail next time :-(

    So i set "Account system disk usage “warn” percentage" to 93%
    While my "df -h" command says that usage is 90% and i am almost sure that for past 5 years, usage was below 80%.

    If there is any way to make sure i do not miss next warning, please let me know.

    Hello,

    You can browse to "WHM >> Server Contacts >> Contact Manager" to see which contact methods are configured for the "Disk Usage Warnings" notification. The "Communication Type" tab allows you to select the contact methods used for each priority.

    Thank you.
