    Capacity planning - start date




      We have recently upgraded to use NPM 11.5.2 and are hoping to use the capacity forecasting to highlight potential issues.


      A number of our disks show with an increasing trend, simply because one team handles deployment, and at some point later another team actually starts using them.


      I found these two posts which are similar: https://thwack.solarwinds.com/thread/78149, https://thwack.solarwinds.com/thread/71908


      I was wondering if it is (or could be) possible to set a date to start the forecast from, in this case 1st April would be ideal where since then the trend slope would be 0%.

           I think this would also help where a large deviation from "normal" occurs, if you could define the forecasting start date just after a large purge of files then you would avoid missing alerts for resource exhaustion.
