@kasunth look for the example query in the Logs blade.  Type in "free disk" to find a suitable query (or look at others)Screenshot 2021-03-17 111959.jpg
It tells you the next step, which is  - 'To create an alert for this query, click '+ New alert rule'' - see here

Hello @kasunth,

 

Below is an instruction on how to create an alert based on custom log:

let PercentSpace = 10;
Perf
| where ObjectName == "LogicalDisk" and CounterName == "% Free Space"
or ObjectName == "Logical Disk" and CounterName == "% Free Space"
| where InstanceName != "D:"
| summarize FreeSpace = avg(CounterValue) by Computer, InstanceName
