Source for Disk Info


Recommended Posts

Good Morning - 

I'm a long time DrivePool & Scanner user and love the pair of apps which I use in my home lab.  Just wanted to ask a quick question, please.  I'm wrapping up designing a Grafana dashboard for my lab PCs which gets its data from InnoDB which in turn is populated by both telegraf and open hardware monitor. Unfortunately, I've been unable to find a good source for performance of individual disks - just basics for logical ones which obviously doesn't help with a pool.

Just wanted to post and ask where exactly Scanner pulls its disk stats from - especially "Performance", "Drive Activity %,", & "Temp".  If you can't share, I understand, but assume it's specific WMI paths.

We pull the info from the performance counters in Windows, actually. 

To that point, in some cases, we've had to reset them to get performance to show:

Also, StableBit Scanner does expose some info to WMI.  You can look at phpsysinfo for details on what it exposes, actually.
