Database,Drive,Data file growth monitor

,

This script is to monitor drive\database file space. There are variations of this script. The one posted has 2 parts. The frist is one that loops through the databases on a particular server calling the second which is the proc that gathers the information.

/*
*************************************
The purpose of this is to go and check each file in a particular DB/Filegroup and calculate how much space is available.
In addition to that I have included the following columns to help with determining whether space should be added or not.
** this should help in taking a pro-active approach to space issues

columns:
Group_Name  = file group name that file is a member of
[File_Name] = file name  ,
Drive = drive the file reside on,
Allocated_Space = amount of space that has been allocated for file,
Actual_Size = actual amount of space that the file has used,
Space_Available = the remaining allocated space ,
Total_FREE_Drive_Space = amount of drive space available ,
MAX_GROWTH = displays maxium size the file can grow if it is set. 0 if it can grow until it runs out of space,
File_Growth = how much the file will grow by: displayed in either MB or %

the calculations where simply taken directly from the table. the sys... tables store values that represent the number of pages.
knowing this, it is easy to take that value multiply it by 8 (8k in every page) and then divide that by 1024 (amt of bytes in MB)
** ALL VALUES RETURNED ARE IN MB

BOL has how to convert the status column to more meaningful information:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
0x1 = Default device.
0x2 = Disk file.
0x40 = Log device.
0x80 = File has been written to since last backup.
0x4000 = Device created implicitly by the CREATE DATABASE statement.
0x8000 = Device created during database creation.
0x100000 = Growth is in percentage, not pages.
