You want to get an alert when disk space used on a server exceeds 90%, but you will not consider

the problem fixed until the space used drops below 60%.You want to get an email when the

problem occurs, but you also want an email when the problem is fixed. While the problem remains

unfixed, you want the alert to stay active in the Orion NPM Web Console. If you create an alert
