Available Disk Space monitoring and alerts are not sufficient

The current available tools for visualizing and alerting on available Disk Space for Azure Virtual Machines should be expanded. In the Dashboards module, there is no Live Tile that would allow you to see a Virtual Machine's disks and available space. You can get some data through custom queries, but these queries are manual-refresh only and are not truly suited to a live Dashboard environment.

Similarly, there is no way to create an Alert for low disk space in the current Alerts module. In Alerts (Classic) there was a % Free Disk Space - this is not sufficient because it would not alert you to an individual disk being full. In Alerts (non-classic) there is no Alert Criteria in either Disks or Virtual Machines that would allow you to monitor the free space associated with any disks on a Virtual Machine.
