Effective Disk Monitoring

Question

Is it possible to create a disk threshold that aggregates multiple conditions before sending an alert?  The scenario I have in mind, is where a disk might be 90% full, which would ordinarily trigger an alert, but due to the size of the disk (say 1TB), there is 100GB remaining.  I would like to be able to build a threshold that allows us to check if a disk is over 90% and has less than 5GB free space remaining, then alert.

Has anyone had any success in doing something similar?

Many Thanks,

~Nick

Hey Nick,

You should be able to do this with a Complex Datapoint and Datapoint Expressions: https://www.logicmonitor.com/support/datasources/creating-managing-datasources/datapoint-expressions/

Something like:

if( and( gt(StorageUsed, 90), lt(StorageSize, 5) ), 1, 0)




Then just set an alert threshold if that Complex Datapoint returns 1.
