You can configure low disk space warnings on a datastore to receive an email from vCloud Director when the datastore reaches a specific threshold of available capacity. These warnings alert you to a low disk situation before it becomes a problem.

1

Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click Provider vDCs in the left pane.

2

Right-click the provider vDC name and select Open.

3

Click the Datastores tab.

4

Right-click the datastore name and select Properties.

5

Select the disk space thresholds for the datastore.

You can set two thresholds, yellow and red. When vCloud Director sends an email alert, the message indicates which threshold was crossed.

6

Click OK.

vCloud Director sets the thresholds for all provider vDCs that use the datastore. vCloud Director sends an email alert when the datastore crosses the threshold.
