Feature Request - Ignore disk with free space above then

Example:

As per Guest Disk Space Alarm, if one has:

1.500 VM with disks around 50 GB
2.100 VM with disk around 1 TB
3.100 VM with disk around 2 TB
4.100 VM with disk around 3 TB

- below 10% Alerts is good for VM with 50 GB disks (5 GB is correctly alerted as low threshold)
- but below 10% Alerts is not a good value for other as 102,4 GB of frees space for 1 TB VM disks
so one need to create a custom alerts for 1TB for example to 1% or 0,5% (5 GB or 10 GB).
- but below 1% or 0,5 % is not so good for 2TB an so…

To avoid creating many custom Alerts for free disk space management, would be enough to put a
fixed under limit value, so for example one can specify: use one (probably the standard) “Guest Disk Space” Alert,
but ignoring all alerts for FREE DISK SPACE OVER X, for X one can put custom value, like 10 GB. This avoid complex
custom alerts configuration, difficult to maintain for many VMs and situations.

Hello Roberto.
The can already be fulfilled. You may combine conditions of Relative and Absolute free space within an Alarm Rule, you can group VMs with Veeam ONE Business View by the amount of disk size and assign different alarms to each group.
Thanks!
