Need ability to select single event with multiple threshold on same metric for different disk mount

Currently in Instana you cannot create more than one threshold on same metric. We get this message "No more than one threshold can be defined on the same metric."

Use case: Customer wants to create a single event when disk mount usage exceeds 90% for multiple directories like /opt, /tmp, /home etc.

Current workaround create mulitple events but it would good to have a single event and it easier to maintain. For example, for a customer we ended up creating 12-14 on the same metric type and thresholds but different mount points.

    Is there any update on an ETA? Even first half or second half would be helpful. Thanks.
