What is growth?    Place used or allocated space in database, or allocated on disk?

Example using backup size

Size of backup is a trend that  you can get out of database. Other sizes you have to gather periodicaly and exploit the captured data. Something like in following example

Thanks, jogos!
All of these seem to be outside of SCOM. Have you tried to do it within SCOM?
Thanks!

Ok, thanks. I will have to try something else. EE doesn't have SCOM as a category :(
