I would recommend to use OnCommand Unified Manager (OCUM) for capacity monitoring since NetApp removed most capacity EMS events.
OCUM has all the needed events like "Aggregate Space Nearly Full", "Aggregate Days Until Full", "Aggregate Growth Rate Abnormal", etc. (same with volume of course) and let's you report those via email, SNMP, etc.
You can also use the latest version which over time got quite some juicy GUI, and still monitor ONTAP systems back to 8.2 if I remember correctly.
As far as I know it's "free of charge" if you own an ONTAP system and no extra license is needed.
If you really only monitor this EMS event to check for available space on your aggrs you might react to late if there is too much growth...

Betreff: Re: mgmtgwd.aggregate.used.rising
ah looks like aggr nearly full messages are now lumped in with volume nearly full messages in Ontap 9, e.g:
Message: monitor.volume.nearlyFull: Aggregate prod4a is nearly full (using or reserving 95% of space and 0% of inodes).
So I guess they are in there after all - that sorts me out.

I assume you got this message from trolling the message log?
yeah, that message has been around since the GX days I believe. sucks that it's gone in Ontap 9. Mike> I don't see the associated message in the Ontap 9 message

I'd probably just script something out that does a show aggr and then
parses the numbers and alerts on them. 'dashboard storage show' might
also be something to look at, but much harder to parse and work with.
yeah looks like will have to hack something together, would be great if the filer could tell you when it's running low on space though, seems like a pretty fundamental metric to be able to alert on.
Do you run with a bunch of small aggregates, or much fewer, larger
aggregates? I personally like monster aggregates, so I don't have to
move volumes very often if at all.
we thin provision all of our volumes, as it's difficult to forecast which ones will get large, and we don't want to have a lot of empty disk space wasted.
this means that aggregate used is fairly constantly rising, so once an aggr gets around 90% full, we start looking to vol move stuff elsewhere.
But I do have some smaller dedicated aggregates for some Oracle DBs
which need the dedicated IOPs. This is still on a 7-mode 8.x system
which is running out of steam...
