Windows Drive Space Alerts By default, LogicMonitor alerts on the percentage used on any drive. This in general is fine, but sometimes not. Let’s imagine you have a 2.2 terabytes drive. You might have your critical threshold set at 90%, which sounds fine, until you realise that you are going to get a critical alert when you still have 220 GB free. In my case that would be a cause for some celebration, not really an urgent need to get up at 3 A.M. and delete files so the world doesn’t end. Now Imagine your 2.2TB drive is divided up as: C: 10 GB (OS) D: 500 GB (Mission cr
The majority of the alerts we get every day are high volume usage and sometimes its hard to work with this because you don't know how large the volume is. For example, working on a 50TB system and your threshold is set at 90% you will begin to receive alerts when you still have 5 TB left. Would it be possible to have a feature that would allow you to see the size of the drive and set the alert for GB instead of percentage? This would allow for faster use of thresholds on drive alerts.
Previous versions of VMware datasources had the ability to monitor disk space for VMs via vCenter. Looks like this ability has disappeared after LM fixed a datasource bug in January. We now have 100+ VMs that we monitor via vCenter but no alerts for their disk space. Is this something we are missing by accident, or has LM stripped this functionality on purpose?
