I have multiple mount points beneath /opt/virt/img, each of them an LVM logical volume formatted with ext4 and containing a qcow2 disk image for a running VM. I want to know when those volumes are getting filled. Is there some type of check_disk wildcard I can use to save me from having to specify each one?

CentOS 6.3 NRPE 2.13

-r '^/opt/virt/img/.*$' - if you need to be more specific – Danie Apr 16 '13 at 13:33
