Global disk space used report of all the devices



Hello all, I was wondering how can I create a report that shows the disk space used by all the monitored devices, to check how it changes over time. Not the % of free space, just the bytes actually used.

Thank you

I'm afraid our native sensors are measuring the "Free Space" only because that is what can cause a server to stop working. For "space used" you will need to either use a custom SMMP or exe/script sensor or Factory Sensor. Once these sensors are monitoring your desired value, you can use those sensors in reports like you are used to. The following articles might be of interest as well:
