Monitoring Disk Space

I'm not a big fan of sending "nag" alerts to get people's attention. I'd rather have people accustomed to responding immediately when they receive an alert.

Disk space is one of those areas however where I make an exception. If space is below 15% and starts dropping rapidly I want to let the admin know exactly where they stand.

I'm looking for suggestions on how best to accomplish the following goals:

1. Send Major alert when disk space reaches 15%
2. Send another Major alert when disk spaces reaches 10%
3. Send Critical alert when disk space hits 8%, then 6%, then 5%, then 4%, then 2%, then 1%, then 0%
4. Send 1 Clear alert when disk space is above 15%, regardless of how many Major or Critical alerts have been sent.

Thanks,
Chris
