Does anyone know how Sybase Central measures what it thinks is enough free disk space?
We have had
"The device containing Dbspace 'system' is running low on disk space. 94.13 GB out of 185.75 GB are free (50.7%). You can free space on this device by deleting old or unnecessary files.
Caution I approve of, but this seems a little extreme.
v126.96.36.1996 but I've checked the docs for fixes in new ebfs but no mention.

The size check is a fixed 2 times the size of the database file being checked. It will check this for all dbspaces and transaction logs and the any that are over that limit will be flagged.
The current threshold is too big if you have all your db files on separate physical devices; which I suspect is your point. Many customers will have all of their database files on the same logical drive so in those cases that threshold is not as overzealous as it appears. Breck's example, for example, would have the transaction log flagged on a 3TB logical drive; possible both files.
