Datastore over-allocation alarm can't exceed 100% ?

Datastore over-allocation alarm can't exceed 100% ?

I'm trying to use the "VMware Datastore over-allocation" alarm to monitor the level of thin provisioning on some datastores.

However, neither the warning or error fields allow a percentage greater than 100% to be entered.

Obviously with thin-provisioning it is quite possibly intentional to have over-provisioned datastores, so setting values greater than 100% should be allowable.

Can the restriction on this field's range be changed in any way?

It's a known issue. Hot fix is available via Veeam support. The fix will be included to the next release.
