Monitoring Information Store size with SNMP or perfmon possible?

Is there any performance object or snmp value that reflects the total size of the
Information Store database?

I don't know of any SNMP value that would give this to you.

You can look at Application Event 1221 for the Mailbox Store you are looking for.

Take the total size of the edb file and substract the amount of free space specified in the event entry. I know this is an approximation but you still get a good idea.

An interesting question.

First off all I think you should monitor freespace, on the drive where you have your Information Stores.
You need at least as much freespace as your largest Information Store database.

Second I believe that you should set a quota on the users. That way you can calculate the maximum Store size,
given the number of users you put in each store.

Back to your actual question No - I am not aware of any way to monitor with SNMP or perfmon on the size.
