This message is also written to the error log:

2018-02-21T08:55:10.490978Z 12 [ERROR] Plugin maxdiskusage reported: 'BLOCKING QUERY: Free filesystem space on /home (7682 MB) is less than 10000 MB: INSERT INTO t1() VALUES()'


Setting Default Description
maxdiskusage_action WARN WARN or BLOCK
maxdiskusage_minfree 0 Act if less than x MB of free space is available
maxdiskusage_monitor_fs /var/lib/mysql Directory to monitor, usally @@datadir
maxdiskusage_pct 100 Warn if over this percentage of usage
maxdiskusage_warn_skip_count 1000 Skip every x events, reduces warning rate

These can be set with SET GLOBAL, but you probably want to put those in your my.cnf


Copy the mysql_maxdiskusage directory to the plugin directory of the MySQL source code. Build the code as usual or just run make maxdiskusag. Either use the resulting build or copy to the plugin_dir.
