Alert when ELM hard drive is almost full

Hello, 

I am trying to setup an alert that triggers when the hard drive on my ELM (and other ESM components) is getting full. 

In the legacy Flash views, there is a "device status" view which reports the ELM is  "X%" full. I am hoping to use this number to create an alert. Ex: if ELM drive is > 80% then send email.  [Note: this view is not available in HTML5...]

I have searched the API and system docs and as far as  I can tell this cannot be done. But that seems silly to me. I refuse to accept that the SIEM, whose sole purpose is to monitor out assets, cannot even monitor itself. If this functionality is really missing...

Does anyone know how to accomplish this ?

Give device health alarm a try.

How do I do that? 

I looked through the Docs and I do not see anything about a Health Alarm...

 

Is this something default with ESM?

Yeah, it comes with ESM as default. It's called Device Health under Alarms.

I'm not seeing "Device Health". I have a view called "Device Status" which provides the information I need, however my question was specifically how to alert based on this data. Is there a way to setup an alarm for this information. And If I am completely looking in the wrong place can you please give a more specific path.
