Alerts for Low Disk Space in SQL server

HI EE,

Does anyone know of any good SQL scripts that can send a low disk space email alert when the disk space falls below a certain threshold?

The script will be run on SQL server 2008 R2 and up.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.

disk space monitoring should be part of system monitoring, not limited to SQL server..
The main difficulty deals with where to set a threshold, I.e. 90% used on a 500 Gb partition means 50Gb are free.
Size of db, rate of growth could mean there is no concern at this threshold...


Even 99% still means 5Gb of space left.

Within SQL, if you are looking at the SQL file space, presumably your db has unlimited file growth, and the either a fixed amount or percentage by which it expands when needed.
