Feature request, exclude single disk from "guest disk space" alarm

Post by hyvokar » Jan 28, 2019 9:35 am

Hi,

I have a one VM that has a 16TB disk with 500gb free. The disk is read-only, and the free space does need to be monitored.
The VM also has a bunch of other disks that need to be monitored.

I'd like to have an feature to exclude a single disk from monitoring, instead of whole VM.

I guess I could do this by excluding the whole VM from "guest disk space" alarm and adding a second alarm just for this VM, but it'd be way more easy to just exclude a single disk.

Hi,
You can provide disk names in Disks to monitor field. This way only listed disks will be monitored.
Thanks!

That does not really help, if I want to exclude e:\ drive from one of the VMs , and still keep monitorin E:\ drive on other VMs.

If you want to exclude disk of 1 VM, you may clone the alarm and assign it to the particular VM. And exclude the whole VM from the initial alarm.
Thanks!

That's right, sorry.
The feature request is clear and taken into account.
Thanks for the feedback!
