Description

Volume Thresholds
  • Volume Nearly Full Threshold Percent specifies the percentage at which the volume is considered nearly full, and above which an EMS warning will be generated.
    • The default value is 95%.
    • The maximum value for this option is 99%.
    • Setting this threshold to 0 disables the volume nearly full space alerts.
  • Volume Full Threshold Percent specifies the percentage at which the volume is considered full, and above which a critical EMS error will be generated.
    • The default value is 98%.
    • The maximum value for this option is 100%.
    • Setting this threshold to 0 disables the volume full space alerts.

Aggregate Thresholds
  • Aggregate Nearly Full Threshold PercentThis optionally specifies the percentage at which the aggregate is considered nearly full, and above which an EMS warning will be generated.
    • The default value is 95%.
    • The maximum value for this option is 99%.
    • Setting this threshold to 0 disables the aggregate nearly full space alerts.

    • Setting this threshold to 0 disables the aggregate full space alerts.
