"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Resource Monitor is simply a simplified version of perfmon. What do you want to monitor? Disk errors, Queue depth, Disk Space remaining? What action do you want taken when a value exceeds a certain percentage? You can use powershell

The decision that you have to make is what counters are relevant for you.

There are several 3rd party monitoring products. For instance
