This alarm is raised when a disk group (or the actual disk) is in danger of filling. Once the disk group fills completely, attempts to update anything in that database may fail.
This calculation is based on the sum of the current size of all the files in the disk group compared with the sum of the file size limits for all the files in the disk group.
While this alarm is current
Open the SQL Server | Databases Drilldown | Data Files page. In the Data Files grid, check for files with Auto Grow=No. Files in danger of filling will have a low Free Pct figure.
To resolve this problem
Adjust the file growth parameters of at least one file in the file group so that files can grow. Make sure the Auto Grow setting is on, and that the MaxSize setting is larger than the current file size.
Spotlight alarm configuration
In Spotlight Enterprise this alarm can be configured to ignore certain values (file groups within the database).
