Percentage Based Alerts

by Jan 27, 2009

One Feature/Suggestion I'd like to see surrounds configuring alerts based on percentages of totals.

I'll use the Apache Tomcat Plugin as an Example:

When Configuring alerts for Total Memory, I'd like to see an option that is based on a percentage of Max Memory.

Total Memory
Warning Percentage of Total Memory 80%
Critical Percentage of Total Memory 95%

In addition to the current comparison methods of equals exactly, not equal to, is greater than, is less than, is greater than or equal to, is less than or equal to.

This type of measurement comparison can also be applied to other metrics such as used threads (based on a comparison of max threads)

I can see this being beneficial in environments, that may configure threads and JVM memory several times during testing.
