I have configured the VMWare probe to alert on datastore % free, but am anuable to figure out how to get the alert to show the actual name of the datastore.  My old message that wokred with version 4.x of VMWare probe:

The disk usage for datastore $descr on $host has $value % Free

I've tried numerous variables to show the name, all to no avail.  The default shows this:

The disk usage for datastore IP_OF_ESXHOST on IP_OF_ESXHOST has % free.


Any pointers would be great.
