The Linux/SSH File System Event Monitor connects to a remote server using SSH and checks the amount of space available on the mounted file systems. This tutorial will go over how to configure a Linux File System Event Monitor so you can begin monitoring your Linux-based file systems with ease.

Configuring the Linux/SSH File System Event Monitor

Enter a comma-separated list of the file systems and/or mount points that you want this event monitor to check.
