  • Making Datadog report mount points vs. device names

    Posted on March 10th, 2015 ashinn No comments

    This will seem like a really dumb post, but I scratched my head on this for a bit. I really wanted my Datadog storage dashboards to report mount point name vs. device names. I couldn’t really find much help within Datadog’s documentation either.

    After going down a few paths, I bumped into this in the datadog.conf:

    # Use mount points instead of volumes to track disk and fs metrics
    use_mount: no

    I changed that over to yes, and boom … problem solved!
