System Information Utilities

Posted on 2007-08-09

Greetings all -

I'm looking for suggestions for command-line based utilities to gather system information, much in the likes of "systeminfo" but with a bit more customizability.  I would like to be able to feed a server list to it and have it poll the same data for all servers and return all the data "systeminfo" returns and more if possible (such as drive space available, and perhaps other metrics).

Does anyone have any suggestions for good utilities out there today to do this?  They certainly don't have to be free.  Please don't say SMS, we already run it.  :)  This is for a separate domain that can't have SMS on it.  :(

Something that can be executed from the command line in a batch file is preferred.


Thanks in advance!

    I use SIW. (

    It does have the ability to script (command line switches) and export the output to file, and it grabs tons of information.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Bartender!  I stumbled on this minutes after asking this question.  That does look like a utility that will meet and easily exceed my needs.

    Thanks again!
