[openstack-dev] [Fuel] fuel master monitoring

As far as I can tell, disk space monitoring is pretty useless, unless Fuel
provides user with some means to automatically cleanup of stored data (i.e.
remove obsolete diagnostic snapshots, etc). Otherwise, it will be only
useful for experienced Fuel developers who know how to properly cleanup the
Master node.

Best regards,
