I have been using Solarwinds for quite a while and I feel that solarwinds does have the functionality to showcase nodes based on percentage Volume used but based on a Global Volume threshold.
When we try to change the threshold on individual disk, we do not see the same reflecting to this view.
For eg :
1. If I have 200 servers (D:) which are supposed to show me Red(Critical), when at 90 % in the Nodes by percentage used, it is easy to build, but when I have a node with (D:), needing attention to critical at 85%, it is possible that the color code changes only at the node level and not in the global views.
Change Benefit ::
If above scenario shows the same threshold in the global views, where we define nodes by Volume percentage utilization, it becomes easier to identify on which nodes we have what threshold, and the color code makes things easier top be handled.
I have requested this as a feature request, reason being, in a big organization like ours, where we have thousands of server, there may be certain servers fort eg : 50 which may need a little different attention on the drive segment, when a full team is relying on the view, though we have alerts, but pro-active monitoring is what solarwinds assists with.
