I have ghosts

On October 30, 2005, in news, by

Stuck in my monitoring database are ghosts.  I didn’t properly remove my usb harddrive so now at 5:50 my alert system hits me via email and IM and tells me I have low disk space.  but I really don’t.  See those dates? It’s an OLD alert and not a current one.  And I have yet to figure out a way to clear them out of the database other than rebooting the server so it will reset the counter.

So don’t worry.. it’s nothing to fear.. my server is not possessed… it’s just a bit haunted by ghosts that’s all…..

    I’ve been wondering what that was — I would get them for days then they would be gone!

    And then they come back again….after a reboot & even after playing nice to the Remove Hardware wizard!

    Where are the GhostBusters when you need them !
