Faddom Server Resources

This will alert if the disk space of the Faddom server reaches 70%. To provide more resources, you will need to do so from your hypervisor. For vCenter deployments, you need to perform additional seteps once this is done.. See How to increase the size of the database disk on the Faddom virtual appliance?
