Network File System (NFS) is used for file sharing between Linux servers. It provides a centralized storage solution and easy access to remote files. This plugin shows the status of the configured NFS mount points in the server.
- Our Linux server monitoring agent should be installed in the network or on the specific host where the NFS mount is running.
- While adding a plugin, the plugin name and its folder name inside the Site24x7 agent should be identical.
- Download and install the latest version of the Site24x7 Linux agent in the server where you plan to run the plugin. If it is installed successfully, you will see a Linux server monitor in the Site24x7 Control Panel. This confirms that the agent is able to communicate with our data center.
- Download the nfs.py, nfs_check.sh, and nfs.cfg files from our GitHub repository.

- Edit the file 'nfs.cfg' to enter the mount points for monitoring. If you need to update the point points after the plugin is registered, increase the plugin version by 1.
[display_name]mount_folder = “ mount_folder_path-1 , your_mount_folder_path-2 ”plugin_version = 1
- Create a folder with the name 'nfs', under the Site24x7 Linux agent plugin directory '/opt/site24x7/monagent/plugins/' and place the nfs.py, nfs_check.sh, and nfs.cfg files under '/opt/site24x7/monagent/plugins/nfs/'.
