you are right. When you want to create an alert based on fixed free space of datastores, the "datastore.freeSpace" attribute is the correct one. So you can use this alert settings:
- create a new alert and on Scope tab use "datastore.freeSpace:[0 TO 10737418240]" as a search query (10737418240 corresponds to 10 GB) and choose "Evaluate on Performance data collection"
- on Notifications tab insert "/datastore/freeSpace" into Find field in order to see free space of each datastore listed in that alert
I hope I answered your question. If not or if you have any other questions, feel free to reply.
Thank you! That is exactly what I needed, and I was able to setup an alarm.
