Some disk drives and SSD (Solid State Drives) have a feature called “S.M.A.R.T.” which means “Self-Monitoring, Analysis & Reporting Technology”. On Windows computers, this information is stored in WMI. I wrote a PowerShell script-based datasource to collect this info. Since not all drives have this SMART feature, I put in a datapoint that also shows if it has this feature/capability (1=yes, 0=no).




  1. Download this datasource file and add it to your account:  Settings > Datasources > Add > From file
  2. Wait a few minutes for it to start collecting….Test it by looking in the “Raw Data” tab.
  3. I set it to alert threshold to ‘warning’ if the value is anything other than “OK” but you can change it.


As with most of my datasources, you cannot get official technical support from LogicMonitor.
