Q. I checked the box to 'Ignore Storage Table Indices' for Physical and Virtual Memory in the Host Resources probe, but I am still getting memory usage alarms:

01/25 11:11:46 alrm Swap Memory usage exceeds 90%. Real Memory usage exceeds 90%

How can I get the probe to ignore memory usage?

A. The problem is that the ignore is only for the HOST-RESOURCES storage table items. You are still getting a very similar error message from the UCD-SNMP memory information at the bottom of the page, which is not affected by the suppression of storage table indices. It does, however, take as its thresholds the memory thresholds you can set in the probe, so if you set those to 100%, that should stop the alarm state.
