Modify the 80% threshold filesystem notification.

  • The default behavior is for OMV to notify once used disk space reaches 80% of capacity. Many find this value too low and the frequent notifications annoying.

    To raise the notification threshold above the default 80% value, to 95% for example, perform the following:

    As the root user, edit the file: /etc/default/openmediavault and add the following line (or change it to the value you want if it already exists):


    Run the following commands as root in the shell:

    For OMV 2.x:

    /etc/init.d/openmediavault-engined restart
    omv-mkconf monit
    /etc/init.d/monit restart

    For OMV 3.x and 4.x :

    omv-mkconf monit
    monit reload

    For OMV 5.x:

    omv-salt stage run prepare

    omv-salt deploy run monit
