I would start by searching cpan to see if there are any modules that can help me. I know that there are Windows related modules, so start there.

Windows has many applications that already do this, why would you want to use perl?

Hi KevinADC,

can you put more light on what you said? Are you talking about performance monitor? I do get confused with the different counters available.What exactly is the counters that i need to use if i want to monitor the following

- current available free disk space
- current memory utilization status
- Current CPU utilization

I have tried the performance advisor application provided by windows.It do give me the memory and CPU utilization, but not the free disk space. Also there is no facility in the tool to mail the details to an Administrator

I checked in CPAN also. Didnt find what i need.. Can anyone help

I would find a Windows forum and ask your questions there. Make sure to mention the version of Windows you are using. You may have to write some type of script to do the emailing but for all I know there is a Windows application that will also take care of that.
