reduce false positives for used space on data_files for "IBM® Tivoli® Composite Application Manager for Microsoft® Applications" ITM6 agent

Add an attribute, for example 'maxsize unlimited', to attribute group 'MS SQL Database Detail' that would allow to trigger a situation only if the maxsize is not unlimited (cf with auto extend capability).

    The “Database Space Percent Used” attribute calculation depends on the total drive space where the data files are located and the maxsize settings configured during file creation.

    When maxsize is set to unlimited, space present on drive is being considered as maximum limit & accordingly used & free space percentage is calculated.

    So, we think even in case of unlimited maxsize, database usage percentage attribute will show correct value & will not trigger any false positives.

    If customer can give more details about the false positive situations being triggered in their environment, we will be able to investigate and suggest more appropriate solution to them.
