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 Datastores in the left pane.
  2. Right-click the datastore name and select Properties.
  3. On the General tab, 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.
  4. Click OK.
