Nice informative article. We have a tool that performs similar database growth and size data collection and analysis, and also raise alerts when certain limits are reached e.g.
- when your disks cannot accommodate the next 2 growth extents of your database
- when a path has less than 250 MB free
- when the projected growth rate for the next 14 days exceeds your disks current capacity
- when your databases' average growth rate exceeds 20%
- when your TEMPDB database exceeds 1 GB in size
- when your databases' average growth rate exceeds 200 MB
- when your databases' transaction log exceeds 1 GB in size
- when the disks containing your MASTER database has less than 500 MB free space remaining
All the alerts are customizable. Have a look http://www.yohz.com/size_details.htm, and a single-instance license is available for free.
