DB2 Log_space percentage monitoring.

In this use case the customer Julie Yates wants to monitor log_space from her DB2 servers based on percentage. Since her team has multiple DB2 servers and the log_space may differ from one database to another, the ideal monitoring for this metric would be by percentage and not BYTES as it is in Instana today. The possibility to use percentage instead bytes would avoid create multiples events for this same metric just because the log_space from one database differ from another.

The possibility to monitor this metric based on percentage would be aplliable to every customer who has a DB2 instance monitored by Instana

I have check on the #instana-ama slack channel that this same problem was already reported by others analysts and customers, but we still do not have a precise date estimating when thie feature gonna be implemented.
