Alert based on rate of disk consumption, not percentage free.



This is a Follow up to the previously asked question linked at the bottom in 2012. As the user asked. Is there a way to set alerts on the rate of consumption as opposed to total consumed? I just had a rogue process hang while generating a +60GB debug file over the course of a day... happened to check monitoring and saw this, if i had not, service outage for sure!

This is something that we are still working on but I cannot say when it might be out. Many of the other sensors work on a speed basis but for this type of sensor something else is needed in terms of predictive analytics which we haven't worked out all the bugs on. Like Torsten said, please bear with us.
