Operating Systems have come a long way since their early days: from multi-threading to hardware optimisation advancements, there is a lot that's improved. One area almost all OSs are still as bad as their early days is running out of storage.
While a lot of OSs can cope gracefully with memory pressures, most major Operating Systems panic, crash or become unresponsive when they run out of root disk storage. This is often the root of many issues in software applications.
Today we are releasing the latest addition to the long list of Cloud 66 Features that make both Ops and Devs lives easier: Disk Space Alerts. Set by default at an 80% threshold, you will receive alerts when your server disks cross that threshold.
This threshold is configurable on Server Metrics page and you can opt in and out of the notifications via the Stack Notification page.
We hope this helps you enjoy a more peaceful sleep without worrying about your servers!
