Description Pawel Krupa 2019-11-11 10:37:41 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1770348 +++

Description of problem:
Alert message value is not a percentage but is printed as one

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fill node filesystem to within alert levels
2. Observe alert message

Actual results:
Filesystem on /dev/xvda3 at ip-10-0-143-157 has only 0.32% available space left and is filling up.

Expected results:
Filesystem on /dev/xvda3 at ip-10-0-143-157 has only 32% available space left and is filling up.

Additional info:
see attached alert message on web console

Changes needed in these locations

To be like

Yes we should fix this, but we should use the `humanizePercentage` function available in the annotation templating, instead of fiddling with the conversion in PromQL, as this is a display concern.

--- Additional comment from Pawel Krupa on 2019-11-11 10:36:57 UTC ---

This is already fixed in 4.3 by doing multiplication by 100 (as seen in all links from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1770348#c1). 4.2 used a different format for those alerts.
