out of disk warning...

i'm hoping to understand how i can get vcops to alert me about disk space issues on a vm prior to the VM actually being out of disk example below:

it would be nice to have some threshold that if passed it would send this message when say at 90/95% full vs 100%

That alert you have there is a Fault type, driven by the Guest OS | Free Space(GB). This attribute group is populated by the VM Tools and reported to vSphere/vCenter. If you want to catch it BEFORE it gets 0-bytes free, you'll want to setup a hard threshold on the attribute package applied to your VMs, using either a hard threshold GB free or a %.. % free/used being easier to apply to a large set of VMs and keeping things relative. This is assuming you have vC Ops Advanced+, as you need to access the Custom UI to edit these packages and set up these HTs and associated alarms.

If you find this or any other answer useful please mark the answer as correct or helpful.
