  • PDF

Article summary

The following PowerShell script helps the IT Admins to get the details of various performance parameters like CPU usage, memory usage, disk usage, total physical memory, available physical memory, virtual memory available, and virtual memory in use from their managed devices.

  1.  Create a file on your desktop, for example, performance_details.ps1 and open it in a text editor like notepad++

  2. Copy the contents below to the file or click here to download the file.

    # Get CPU Usage
    $cpuUsage = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Processor | Measure-Object -Property LoadPercentage -Average | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Average
    
    # Get Memory Usage
    $memory = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_OperatingSystem
    $totalPhysicalMemory = $memory.TotalVisibleMemorySize
    $freePhysicalMemory = $memory.FreePhysicalMemory
    $availableVirtualMemory = $memory.FreeVirtualMemory
    $virtualMemoryInUse = $memory.TotalVirtualMemorySize - $availableVirtualMemory
    
    # Get Disk Usage
    $diskUsage = Get-WmiObject Win32_LogicalDisk | Where-Object { $_.DriveType -eq 3 } | Select-Object DeviceID, FreeSpace, Size
    
    # Display Results
    Write-Host "CPU Usage: $cpuUsage%"
    Write-Host "Total Physical Memory: $([math]::Round($totalPhysicalMemory / 1MB, 2)) MB"
    Write-Host "Free Physical Memory: $([math]::Round($freePhysicalMemory / 1MB, 2)) MB"
    Write-Host "Available Virtual Memory: $([math]::Round($availableVirtualMemory / 1MB, 2)) MB"
    Write-Host "Virtual Memory In Use: $([math]::Round($virtualMemoryInUse / 1MB, 2)) MB"
    
    Write-Host "`nDisk Usage:"
    $diskUsage | ForEach-Object {
        $drive = $_.DeviceID
        $freeSpace = [math]::Round($_.FreeSpace / 1GB, 2)
        $totalSize = [math]::Round($_.Size / 1GB, 2)
        Write-Host "Drive $drive - Free Space: $freeSpace GB, Total Size: $totalSiz
    
  3. Follow our guide to upload & publish the PowerShell script using Scalefusion Dashboard.

  4. Once the script is executed successfully you will be able to see the data in the Output tab in the View Status report on the Scalefusion dashboard.

Please note that to use the PowerShell scripts, the Scalefusion MDM Agent Application must be installed on the device(s). Please follow our guide to publish and install the Scalefusion MDM Agent Application.
