Does anyone have a good solution to monitor real time rapid data grow on a volume mount points?
We want to monitor volume mount points for free space?
We have WhatsUp Gold Premier but it doesn’t have a solution to monitor volume mount points.
I believe our drives would be called logical. Example: C:\databases\data\databasename
I have looked at the WMI called in powershell but I'm not sure how substantial the resources would be to call this info every few minutes and post the results to HTML. We would like to be able to identify rapid growth on a MDF or LDF.
http://www.logicmonitor.com/ does this using the WMI class Win32_Volume (with some filters so it only discovers volumes with a file system on them that are mounted.)
The win32_logicaldisk class does not work for volume mount points.
We had the same issue monitoring our mountpoints. Take a look at this script, it monitors a lot of our mountpoints right now, works like a charm!
I hope this helps!
