Monitor and Report used disk space



Your Vote:



Hi @ all,

We currently use the sensor "free disk space" on around 50 different Windows Server. We now want to monitor and report the used disk space of the servers. How do we achieve that? We thought with a new custom WMI sensor. If yes, how do we set that up?

Thanks for any help.

Hi Windows IT

Hmm...I only see a custom sensor with a script which returns the used space. Do you need the used GB or Percentage? Please have a look at the custom wmi sensor and then at one of the demofiles in the PRTG Network Monitor\Custom Sensors\WMI WQL scripts.

Search google for "Win32_DiskQuota" to get the correct string.

or you use a custom sensor with a batch or powershell script behind.

regards Thomas
