+# Disk space monitor, take action when the disk space or the amount of
+# inode is running low, it is enabled when BB_DISKMON_DIRS is set.
+# Set the directories to monitor for disk usage, if more than one
+# directories are mounted in the same device, then only one directory
+# would be monitored since the monitor is based on the device.
+# The format are: "directory,minimum space,minimum free inode",
+# either space or inode (Or both of them) should be specified, otherwise
+# the monitor would not be enabled, the unit can be G, M, K or none,
+# but do NOT use GB, MB or KB (B is not needed).
+# Set the action when the space is running low, the action is one of:
+# ABORT: Immediately abort
+# NO_NEW_TASK: no new tasks
+# WARN: show warnings
+# The default is WARN
+# Set disk space and inode interval, the unit can be G, M, or K, but do
+# NOT use the GB, MB or KB (B is not needed), the format is:
+# "disk space interval, disk inode interval",  the default value is
+# "10M, 50" which means that it would warn when the free space is
+# lower than the minimum space(or inode), and would repeat the action
+# when the disk space reduces 10M (or the amount of inode reduces 50)
+# again.
