How to get current system status?

What's your preferred way of getting current system status (current CPU, RAM, free disk space, etc) of one of my virtual machines?

Can someone  share me a code for this?

Thank you in advance.

Thank you for this recommendations. I don't know how to run python scripts, could you please help me with this?
Thank you again for your help.
Hi, batch, VBScript, and Powershell can all make use of WMI queries to gather system information (I don't know about Python because I've never used it).

If you search for "Powershell system inventory" or "VBScript system inventory" you will see many scripts of varying complexity that gather this information.

Here's one:

Hello Rob,

Thank you for this recommendation.
I had a look to your solution of question Q_23836031.html however I doesn't meet my requirement which is more simple like this one.

The VBscript should export a systeminfo & ip address of the machine.txt:

With the following information

Details For: IP address
Serial Number:
Operating System:
C:\ Total:
C:\ Avail:
Total Memory: ,=
Used  Memory: 0
Computer Processor:  
Service Pack:

Thank you in advance for your help
Sure. It's all available from WMI. I'll see if I can make a start on getting it together tomorrow.

Thank you so much Rob!

I found this code however the disk storage and memory is not working well when I launch this from a server and I don't have the IP address variable set up.

Hello Rob,

I launched your script however I got a a file with just the headers and any info.
The VM that I used is in 64 I don't know if this has an impact on the script.

Thank you in advance.
Hi, did you change the first line to put valid computer names into the array?
It works perfectly, this is a great script as I can launch from my computer and put multiple machine names and got a compiled file with the various information!
