Web appliance status to show free disk space
Following an outage that impacted end users through appliance not accepting connections resulting in web pages being inaccessible, requesting functionality to display used and free disk space on (virtual) Web Appliance. It would also be useful to be able to query this using SNMP (see separate Idea submitted by another user in 2012) and/or receive email alerts when disk free space was below a set threshold.
Background is that disk was so full that even after expanding virtual disk, the inbuilt appliance function to expand the disk would not execute because it could not write the necessary scripts to the disk. Required a restore of the appliance from backup to a state when there was sufficient space on the drive.
