K1000 Report on Old Data

01/23/2017 774 views
I would like to run a report on what free drive space my test lab had a few weeks back. I could also see this being a good thing to report what a PC had installed before a hard drive died.

  • Do you have a label for this lab? If not, I would suggest doing that to make it easier. And, of course, if there's any way to make it a smart label rather than manual label (maybe IP range?) do that since it is a best practice.

I don't think that this data is kept by default. What are your asset history settings for Computers?

  • 3 months
    • There are options for which fields to track, are you tracking disk space?
      • I have all of the options turned on/checked.
        Looks like that is the default as I have not been in this area before
    • So if you want any info further than 3 months back you'll have to extend that window. You say "a few weeks back" in your post. What does that mean? 2 weeks? 3? A month?
I ran the following query to see if the disk usage is kept historically and it doesn't look like it is:
and NAME like "testlab%"
and CHANGE_TYPE = "Usage"
Change the computer name to match your test lab machine names to see if the results are different. Although I am keeping history for disks, I only get one result per machine, so there is not historical information on disk usage there.
