I have a need to monitor server disc space usage over time. Can this be done with Kace reporting?

Thanks

This is about as close as you can get without a 3rd party tool. You can schedule this report to run when needed.

SELECT M.NAME AS 'Machine Name', MD.NAME as 'Disk Name',

DISK_USED, DISK_FREE, DISK_SIZE, PERCENT_USED

FROM MACHINE M

LEFT JOIN MACHINE_DISKS MD ON M.ID=MD.ID

ORDER BY M.NAME, MD.NAME

  • That report can also be modified if you are looking at a certain subset of machines. It can also be set to include only machines with 90% used. Let me know if you need it modified to include that.
    • I would love to have the modification for 90% used. Thank you.
      • Change the 90 to match the percentage you need.

        SELECT M.NAME AS 'Machine Name', MD.NAME as 'Disk Name',
        DISK_USED, DISK_FREE, DISK_SIZE, PERCENT_USED
        FROM MACHINE M
        LEFT JOIN MACHINE_DISKS MD ON M.ID=MD.ID
        WHERE PERCENT_USED >= '90'
        ORDER BY M.NAME, MD.NAME

        You can also add in OS. I usually like to keep mine separate (Mac vs. PC).

        SELECT M.NAME AS 'Machine Name', MD.NAME as 'Disk Name',
        DISK_USED, DISK_FREE, DISK_SIZE, PERCENT_USED
        FROM MACHINE M
        LEFT JOIN MACHINE_DISKS MD ON M.ID=MD.ID
        WHERE PERCENT_USED >= '90'
        AND OS_NAME LIKE 'MICROSOFT%'
        ORDER BY M.NAME, MD.NAME
  • Thank You.

not really that part of the k1000 is deisgned as a reporting tool not an alerting tool.

If you cannot purchase monitoring software MS system center you can find free tools on the web to do this.

PSinfo cam be configured in a VB script or use something like
