    Unanswered: Monitor DiskSpace

    I have discovered that there is an extended procedure called xp_fixeddrives, which can check how much space you have on your SQL Server's drives, it works fine. Can some one tell me what can I use to monitor the above (space used on drive) on servers that do not have SQL at all. Remember I want to call that from my SQL NOT from VB

    WMI - Windows Management Instrumentation is what you need.
    This provides you with the ability to monitor all sorts of metrics in a server which are outside of the realm of SQL Server. The notation for addressing the components takes some getting used to, but if you're writing a serious app, it's worth the effort.

    Try searching from or other for +WMI +<whatever language you use>
