Detect disk space used remotely

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 9th on October 2012

Today I needed to know what was the disk usage of multiple remote servers to a study of performance and provide a tailored solution to a customer who wants to virtualize your physical server environment.

Performing the query using powershell get have never had to connect to each server and get a quick and accurate results. This way we can adjust more disk consumption of future migrated server.

As you can see in order to make the query I used powershell and the command get-wmiobject along with the class win32_LogicalDisk, I also used some switches to show us the records we'd mapped network drives or cd-rom (since we do not want to know this information).

The specific value of disk usage that I know I can not refer directly and I had to do a subtraction between the value size and value FreeSpace.

I pass the entire command and the result obtained.

get-wmiobject -class "win32_LogicalDisk" -computername server1, server2 | where {$ _. DriveType-like "3"} | ft __SERVER, deviceid, @ {expression = {($ _ Size.) - ($ _ FreeSpace.) }, label = "UsedSpace"} -auto

Deviceid __SERVER UsedSpace
---------
server1 C: 169078034432
server1 D: 117450104832
server2 C: 7788908544
server2 D: 8210206720

As you can see only show the physical drives (not network drives or CD-ROM drives, etc. ..) this is because we use the value DriveType, I show different values ​​depending on what you want to obtain.

"3"- Local disks.

"4"- Network disks.

"5"- CD-rom.

I hope you like me as aid has served me.

Also you can see the result in GB ... with the following command ... and some data ...

gwmi-class "win32_LogicalDisk"-computername server1, server2| Where {$ _. DriveType-like "3"} | ft __SERVER,deviceid,@{expression={($_.Size/1GB)-($_.FreeSpace/1GB)};label=”Used_Space”},@{expression={($_.FreeSpace/1GB)};label=”Free_Space”},@{expression={($_.Size/1GB)};label=”Total_Size”} -auto

Greetings and see you soon.

Detect RAM usage remotely using powershell

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 8th on October 2012

Today I needed RAM usage detect multiple remote servers to a study of performance and provide a tailored solution to a customer who wants to virtualize your physical server environment.

To make the query I usedpowershelland the commandget-wmiobjectalong with the classwin32_operatingsystem,this does not need to remotely access servers that we want to detect the use of RAM.

The specific value of the use of RAM that I know I can not get straight and I had to do a subtraction between the valueTotalVisibleMemorySizeand valueFreePhysicalMemory. As you all know the use of ram is not stable so if you want to do a study properly, you will have to check this value at various times of the day and do half for example.

I pass the entire command and the result obtained.

get-wmiobject-class "win32_operatingsystem"-computername server1, server2, server3 | ft __ SERVER, @ {expression = {($ _.TotalVisibleMemorySize) - ($ _.FreePhysicalMemory)}, label = "UsedMemory"}

__SERVER UsedMemory

-------

server1 1816500

server2 648668

server3 1738564

I hope you will help.

PS: All this would not have been possible without the invaluable help of one of the best guys Scripting the moment .. Those who follow the blog already know, I do not need to put your name as you would most like to live in anonymity until further notice .. hehe ..

Greetings and see you soon and of course if any of you know how to improve the script, or has to detect the exact query RAM usage without making strange calculations in the script, please post it as a comment and so may see the whole community.

Always good people to comment and contribute knowledge and remember always constructive criticism .. At least for me.
