Alerts can be configured based on Devices, however in the end, the Actions within the Alert are triggered by the failing Monitor(s) contained in the Device.
Having that said, assuming the Alert Action's "Failure Message Text" box has the "%monitorstatus%" token, it should provide the failing Monitor's "Last Result" value, which provides resource usage information.
Hopefully this all makes sense. If otherwise, please don't hesitate to give us a call and we can explain further.
