Feature Request - Free disk space in MB

Post by stemplar »

Because we made a mistake in some of our initial vCloud templates, many VMs have less than 1 GB of free disk space on C:. And since those were templates, many users inherited them (50+). For us it would be really helpful to define the threshold in MBs. Right now its turned off and we run in 0 bytes free. Adding more space automatically in vCloud to all those different vApps is cumbersome, and we are not yet quite there yet with or task manager.

Simon,
Are you asking about alarms or reports?
We provide 2 decimal digits after the dot in our reports, so your disks` size can be estimated with 10MB accuracy.
It`s really uncommon for our clients to have disks with a size less than 1GB.
Thank you.

It's about the alarms. The disk size is 40 GB, but free disk space is less than 1 GB and we try hard to get the new templates populated. 100-200 MB to trigger an error would work for me.
The vShield edges are also very small, we had to exclude those, but that is not that problematic.

I see your point.
You can not set triger`s values in MBs, but you can choose Relative as a type of the trigger, and set below and error, % = 1 what is equal to 400MB for 40GB disk.
Does it work for you?
