Feature Request: Always make room for new data
We just lost a couple day's worth of data over the weekened because the purge settings are time based (older than xxxx) and there doesn't seem to be hard drive full override.
I would request a feature to always make room for new data, no matter what the purge settings are, so that nothing is lost.

While it may be relatively possible to have a 'limit my db size to' option, it would be very messy to start making assumptions about what data can stay and what data can go. It gets messier when it becomes possible other programs are the origin of the problem (i.e. "what do you mean someone ran (please don't!) 'dd if=/dev/zero of=/allYourDiskAreBelongToUs &' ? What a jerk!") causing behavior in the form of an ever-shrinking database.
It's definitely a part of server administration that isn't going anywhere soon.
