You are able to set a Warning or a Limit on a sensors by configuring the Warning-/Error-Limits on those sensors, so that they change their state into Warning or Error state if a certain value/limit is reached. You can set such Limits on the Channel-Tab of most sensors.

Disk, CPU and Memory sensors actually already have these limits pre-set by default, so the sensors will already go into Warning-/Error-State if certain limits are reached (you can of course check the limits or change them), and then all you need is an appropriate State Trigger notification on those sensors in order to get an alert when the error happens.
