So it is something that I plan on implementing via an enhancement to the analysis.cfg file. Right now my plan is to add a STATUS definition at a level above the current HOST/PAGE/GROUP ... definitions, something like:
> DISK / 70 90
> DISK /var 80 95
> DISK %^/oradata 95 98
> DISK %rollback 60 90
> DISK /var/lib/mysql 80 90
