are there any custom wmi templates for Disk Drive performance?



looking for a template that creates a table for at least:

disk read %
disk write %
Average Disk Queue/current disk queue
average disk sec / write
average disk sec / read

guessing it could would be in table form and pick up all physical drives.

if not available, how can i come close to creating this with custom sensors or using the sensor factory tool.

You might want to check out the Disk Sensors in the "WMI Vital System Data" Section.

To retrieve Disk Data directly via WMI in a "Custom WQL" or a "Custom EXE" Sensor please have a look at the following classes:

  • Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfDisk_PhysicalDisk
  • Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfDisk_LogicalDisk
