    Basic Volume Alerts question/problem.

      Hi,

      I recently set up a basic alert in Orion v8.5 SP3 which triggers whenever the "Volume Percent Used" value on a couple of my server's drives (C:\ and D:\) is greater than 85%. The action I created was to send an email. Here's what I'm noticing, Drive C:\ on the server in question is currently at 89% used. I'm receiving an email alert from Orion stating the following:

      Alert: Percent Space Used of SERVER1-C:\ 88f98052 is now 89 %

      15 minutes later after receiving the previous alert, I get a Reset alert from Orion even though I have not cleaned up any usage on the drive and the percent used is still at 89% (See below)

       Reset: Percent Space Used of SERVER1-C:\ 88f98052 is now 89 %

       In conclusion, I'm receiving an email alert from Orion every 15 minutes. One alert contains the Trigger message and the next one contains the Reset message. I don't think this is the way it should work since I shouldn't receive the Reset message until the condition for Trigger no longer applies.

       Can you let me know what I'm doing wrong here? Or is this how Orion's Basic Volume Alerts are designed to work?

       Thanks.
