Extend time window to more than 120 min


Currently, when creating an event with built-in host metrics, the time window is limited to 120 min

We received the following request, which is not currently possible with this limitation :

- trigger an alert when a filesystem is > 70% full for more than 24h.

Could it be possible to add more options to the "Time Window" menu, for instance "24 hours" ?

Best regards,

    extending the time window to 24 hours would mean there would be an extremely high "warm-up" period.
    We are working with the Infrastructure team to find a more suitable way to monitor some of the slow changing metrics, without having to evaluate 1-sec granularity information over a 24h period.
