  • Simply override the settings of the existing monitor (you have found it already I guess). Think of it this way.. the state change and alerts will onlly happen if BOTH percent and MB thresholds are reached. SO if you want it to only alert on the percentages you just have to make sure you always pass the MB value first. If you set the MB value thresholds to something very big -> they quickly pass that threshold, but will not affect state or alerts as they need to pass the percentage thresholds first before doing that. SO set override to high MB values and you are ready.
