hopefully i will be able to get across what it is i am trying to achieve and someone can then point me in the right direction.

i have developed a database and SSIS package which is used to process and store monitoring information about a data centre. one of the items monitored is disc space.

what i now need to do is trend out the disc usage so that then i can predict when certain disc usage threshold will be met. the place i am stuck is how to deliver this/report this to the team who requires this information.

Any help on possible solutions would be grand. I'm not expecting someone to do the work for me as i am proficient in most of the SQL Server stack. its just this has me stumped because i have never worked with trends before.

Thanks
T

Update i have tried excel 2013 using poverpivot and the trends do not appear to be persistent within the charts and when displayed its hard to work out the date the threshold is reached..

For a simple trend, wouldn't you just figure out Growth by month for the last n... months. Then make a monthly average.
So if it grows 1 gb/Month. Then take Current size minus max size to give you space for growth, then divide by monthly growth giving you month to max size.

(Current size - Max Size) / 1gb = # Months to Max
Go
