Hi,

I would like to create a job that will return the following infos :
- free diskspace
- used diskspace
- total diskspace

I know how to get the first info but don't know how to do the remaining ones.

Thank you for your assistance.

You have several options. One way is to use a JAL script job and basically from a script run DOS dir command and parse the output, or use a VBScript job and use Drive object to get total and free disk space, for example,

Code:
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set oDrive = fso.GetDrive("C")
curSpace = oDrive.FreeSpace
totSize = oDrive.TotalSize
 
curUsage = curSpace/totSize
curFree = 1 - curUsage
MsgBox "Current free space: " & FormatNumber(oDrive.FreeSpace,0) & vbLf & _
         "Total size: " & FormatNumber(oDrive.TotalSize,0) & vbLf & _
         "Current usage(%): " & FormatPercent(curUsage, 2) & vbLf & _
         "Current free(%): " & FormatPercent(curFree, 2)


For more details, see VBScript manual provided with 24x7, look for Drive object and its methods

If you're running on a Unix-based system you can use:

Code:
df -k


If you're running under Windows powershell is an option:

Code:
powershell get-wmiobject -class win32_logicaldisk
