File System Space Change Check

This check monitors changes in file system utilization, generating an Alert where the data at the selected volume has grown by more than X percent in a 24 hour period.

Where a Check is added or edited the new settings are downloaded to the Agent the next time it communicates back to the Dashboard and applied when the Check runs after that.
