Cache Writes Alarm

This alarm is activated when the level of Cache Writes exceeds a threshold.

High cache writes usually mean one of the following:

  • There is a lot of updating occurring in memory pages.
  • An application is requesting to write information directly to disk.

When this alarm is current you should look at the Processes tab on the Processes drilldown to see which applications are busy. Look at page faults delta and CPU time. These columns will show which applications are causing the high level of cache writes.

Disk Alarm

This shows that the logical disk is filling up or is full.

To rectify this:

  • Inform users of the disk volume to clean up space by deleting or moving files no longer required.
  • Go through and delete files that are no longer required from the volume.
  • Move files to a volume with spare space.
  • Purchase more disk capacity for the system, and move data onto it.

It is recommended that a backup of the system is taken before any files are moved or deleted.
