I saw another (older) post about this but it didn't quite match, so I thought I'd re-ask... I'm in need of finding a way to track data growth trends for my clients. Specifically, I need to know the total amount of data used on a volume, and track it over time. Then, extrapolate a future trend ( XXTB in 6 months, etc) to show growth. Ideally I'd like to see it by volume, but subtotaled by server, and again by customer. I tried to start writing this myself, but the built-in disk checks appear to store the percent used on the disk rather than the actual bytes used. This is a challenge, since most customers are on VMWare, and VMDK's are resized often. Also customers sometimes move data between drives on the server (by 'archiving' data to a different share, etc) Once the disk is resized, the percentage of used space is meaningless. Does anyone know of a plug-in that does this type of data growth trending? I really can't believe it doesn't exist already. This is driven by my customers that want to know how many years they can get out of a SAN or a BDR, etc... Alternatively, if someone could point me to a way to modify Labtech to actually put the bytes used (instead of percent used) in the database that would be awesome. I appreciate any help.
