    Increasing Disk Space Alert

    josh.royle

      Hi,

       

      I want to setup an alert so that if a hard drive on one of the servers increases 10% or more in 24 hours, does anyone have any idea if this is possible to setup? I had a play around with the alerts but couldn't seem to set it up.

       

      Thanks in advance,

          Hi Josh,

           

          There isn't any way (that I'm aware of) to generate an alert based on rate of change.  The best way I've found to handle this is to have a "warning" alert and then a "critical" alert at a higher level, although this still wouldn't achieve your timescale requirement

           

          This would certainly make a great feature request.

              might something like this work?

              custom pollers for the statistic as a rate

              transform poller to convert it into a percentage;

              advanced alert to work off the transformed value

               

              The lowest poll rate is every 10 hours, so at polling every 6 hours this is (very approx) 2.4% (think compound interest)
