You can configure StorageEdge to notify when you are running low on disk space otherwise the BLOBs will not be added when available space reaches its specified limit. This section allows you to set filters on a storage device. Using "Read only" filter a storage device will be marked as read only when the "Free space is less than" or "Used space is greater than" the certain limit. User can limit the space accordingly. To use this feature, users need to enable the filter and provide the following data:
 
  • Select the type of filter from the drop down menu.
  • Select the space on a disk.
 
To receive notifications regarding disk space, user need to enable the send email notification option and enter the email address where he/she wish to receive notifications at. Here same two filters: "Free space is less than" and "Used space is greater than" are provided using which user can select any/both the filters for warnings on reaching a specific space on the disk.
 
 
Note: 
 
* A storage pool can be configured with multiple storage profiles and multiple tiers from different profiles. With in a profile multiple tiers cant use the same storage pool.
