Disk space alert
The disk space alert can be configured on Server-Level as a host machine alert, but the alert is fired for every Instance on that host.
As example, we have 5 instances on a sever, each instance has it's own drive, e.g.
instance1 on drive d:
instance2 on drive e:
instance3 on drive f:
If one instance, e.g. instance2 on drive e: is filling up it disk, the alert is fired for all instances. We would like to see an alert only for the instance that is affected and not 5 alerts.

Yes, it's not a bug, but we need a finer setting or an additional function to map discs to an instance or monitor the discs at instance level

Hi Peter thanks for the feedback - in this case SQLM is behaving as designed but it doesn't work well for you in the scenario you describe.
