Free Disk Space Report – Disk Capacity Reporting

As an example for how to actually create reports within the new Operations Manager 2007 reporting interface I started with the question: “How do I generate a report for free disk space on servers monitored by OpsMgr?”
The easy approach is not to use a report for this, but rather to use the Operations Console directly to provide a graph. This can be done through the Operations Console / Monitoring / Microsoft Windows Server / Performance / Disk Capacity. This view also allows you to specify how long the graph should show data through clicking on the Select Time Range option. (Free Disk Space 1 graphic below)
The second option I have found is to create a report based upon the built-in Performance report. This is done through:
In the Operations Console open Reports / Microsoft Generic Report Library / Performance


  1. Double-click on the Performance report
  2. Set the date to Yesterday as a starting Date
  3. Click Change to configure the report
  4. Click on the New Chart button (Free Disk Space 2 graphic below)
  5. Click the Add Object button
  6. Type in C: for the field next to Object Name. (Free Disk Space 3 graphic below)
  7. Add the first server off of the list and click Ok.
  8. Click New Series
  9. Click on the Add Object
  10. Object contains C:
  11. Add the next server off of the list and ok.
  12. Repeat steps 9-12 until all servers / drives required for the report are added.
  13. Click on the first of the three series shown in the chart and click on the Browse button under Rule.
  14. Choose Search by Counter.
  15. Choose the Performance object of LogicalDisk.
  16. Choose the Counter % Free Space and Search.
  17. Add % Logical Disk Free Space. (Free Disk Space 4 graphic below)
  18. And press Ok.
  19. Perform the same action for the remaining counters. Click Ok when completed. (Free Disk Space 5 graphic below)
  20. Click the Run button to run the report.
  21. Do a file/save to Favorites to make the report accessible after you have configured it!
