cronspam from prometheus-directory-size (on labstore1004)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


There is a prometheus-directory-size exporter at:


On labstore1004 it creates daily cronspam due to:

find: ‘/srv/tools/shared/tools/project/paws/userhomes/*’: No such file or directory

Not sure if the proper fix is to ignore that path above or to generally make sure it does not alert when a directory does not exist but probably BOTH.

Would be nice to stop the daily mails one way or the other.

That actually makes sense since that path was removed, and I bet it was coded in somewhere.

Change 642558 had a related patch set uploaded (by Bstorm; owner: Bstorm):
[operations/puppet@production] nfs monitoring: remove the old paws path

Change 642558 merged by Bstorm:

Thanks a lot for the quick response!
