If the disk utilization is high for a platform or a collector, an alert is triggered to warn the user. Also, a recommendation of how much more disk space needs to be added is provided. You can view the alert in the platform or the collector dashboard. The alert is also shown in the corresponding collector or the platform section in the Infrastructure and Support > Overview and Updates page.

You can add disks to the nodes by performing the following steps:
Note: Do not expand the existing hard disk.


  1. Log into vCenter through the Web client with sufficient privileges.
  2. Right click the node and click Edit settings.
  3. Add the hard disk as per the recommendation provided in the alert.
    vRealize Network Insight takes a few minutes to detect the appliance and add it to the /var partition.
