Is it possible to add monitoring on volumes?

The current monitoring/alert system only sends notifications if the root disk's utilization is beyond a threshold. The alert is not triggered when an attached volume is over-utilized. Is it possible at this time to add monitoring to volumes instead of droplets?

Thanks for your feedback. This is a feature we are looking to add.

  • +1, I would love to have such an ability.

  • ... and by "I would love to", I mean: I yearn for, I need such an ability. You have such gorgeous graphs and sweet, sweet monitoring functions — they make me feel like a king overlooking his kingdom. When I have to log into servers and manually check the disk usage of their attached volumes, it breaks my heart. It turns me into into a dirt-shoveling peasant of the very same kingdom. I don't want any peasants in my kingdom. I'm its only member.

any update on this ?
i'm using volumes for backup of several databases and monitoring this is very critical for me
