    Disk Space Monitoring in ESXi 3.5

      Hi All,

       

       

      Is there a simple way to setup email alerts on disk space thresholds for ESXi hosts? We have recently had a situation where a VM is sized to fit the available space but a snapshot has been created which then obviously begins to fill more space. We had the problem that the snapshot filled all available space and the host bricked taking down a number of vital VM's.

       

       

      Simple disk space monitoring would have prevented this or at least alerted us to the problem.

       

       

      Is this something that can be setup with ESXi or is this functionality only available with ESX?

       

       

      Thanks in advance
