Datastore disk provisioned trigger for alarm doesn't go over 100%

Hello everyone,

I've been working for some time with vSphere 7.0. When I wanted to create an alarm, which looks at overprovisioning, I noted that I cannot set a value over 100%. This used to be possible in earlier vSphere versions. Why has this behavior changed? If I only use thin-provisioning on the VMware level, it's possible to get this higher than 100%, and that's what I want to monitor.

Is this a feature in vSphere 7.0, or is there a way to get an alarm which is triggered when a datastore has 150% provisioned capacity?
