  • Capacity Management

    Hi All,

    Trying to see if there would be a product available that we could use to monitor disk capacity of circa 90 windows server 2003 and 10 windows server 2003 servers

    these are a mixture of file and print, application and sql servers.

    Many thanks

      to be honest no, if you could point me in the direction of a couple of products i will gladly look at them.

      i don't need anything massively complicated but would like to be able to set realistic thresholds per server and be alerted when capacity drops to 20% 15% etc etc

      many thanks

        Look at PerfMon (native windows tool)
        Price is definitely right!

          sounds more like you need snmp monitoring.
          you can look into spiceworks, which is free, or go the exact opposite and go with solarwinds, which is a huge dollar. i have used both, but solarwinds is a clearner layout.

          on a side note (the used car salesman in me) if you need something for active directory management, let me know! i will hook you up with a trial version of our product at techtoolbox.
