We use SCCM to deploy packages so we needed to monitor the c:\windows\ccmcache folder. We have a 10 GB policy on that folder so it is not supposed to get over 10 gigs. BUT we have many workstations that are over 20, 40 and even 60 gigs. That had me thinking... How can I get a report on each and every device's ccmcache folder size.  A few discussions around her helped me get the report I needed. Here is what I did..

Create a powershell script that gets the folder size, converts the size and rounds it up to only two decimals and then writes that value to a custom registry key.

Here is the script I used.  Push this powershell script however you can, having it run at startup would be best. That way the key value is consistently updated. 

 

 

 

# Define the folder path
# Change the patch to the folder you would like to monitor
$FolderPath = "C:\Windows\ccmcache"

# Get the folder size in bytes
# Do not change anything on this line
$FolderSizeBytes = (Get-ChildItem -Path $FolderPath -Recurse | Measure-Object -Property Length -Sum).Sum

# Convert bytes to gigabytes and round to two decimal places
# Do not change anything on this line
$FolderSizeGB = [Math]::Round($FolderSizeBytes / 1GB, 2)

# Format the gigabytes value to include leading zero for single digits
$FormattedSize = "{0:00.00}" -f $FolderSizeGB

# Creates a reg path with Your Companys Name
# Change the YOURCOMPANYNAME to whatever you like
$RegistryPath = "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\YourCompanyName"

# Created a reg string name for the folder being monitored
# Change the name inside the "" to whatever you like
$RegistryName = "CCMCACHESIZE"

# Check if the registry key exists
# Do not change anything on these lines
if (-not (Test-Path $RegistryPath)) {
    New-Item -Path $RegistryPath -Force | Out-Null
}

# Set or update the registry value
# Do not change anything on this line
Set-ItemProperty -Path $RegistryPath -Name $RegistryName -Value $FolderSizeGB -Force

 

 

 

 

After running the script you should now see the new registry key and value like this.

Now that is done we need to setup Lansweeper to scan that registry key. 
In Lansweeper go to "Scanning" --> "File & Registry Scanning"

Under "Registry Scanning" Click "Add Registry Scan.

  • Add your companies name to the end of the RegPatch
  • Give the RegValue a name. 
  • Click OK (It should look something like this..)
    RegistryKeyScanningb1.jpg

Now you should see that key in the Registry Scanning

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now you can see that value on each device or in a report. 

To see information for each device

To see the value on each device, go to that device's page --> Click Config --> Scanned Items --> Registry Keys.

You will see the newly scanned registry key.

To run a report for the registry key value. 

All you need to do is create a new report with the following... 

 

 

Select Top 1000000 tblAssets.AssetID,
  tblAssets.AssetName,
  tblAssets.Domain,
  tblAssets.Username,
  tblAssets.Userdomain,

  tblAssets.Version,
  tblAssets.SP,
  Case

      'Last registry scan more than 24 hours ago! Information may not be up-to-date. Try rescanning this machine.'

  Case
    When SubQuery1.Valuename Is Not Null And SubQuery1.Valuename <> ''

  Left Join (Select Distinct Top 1000000 tblErrors.AssetID As ID,
      Max(tblErrors.Teller) As ErrorID
    From tblErrors
    Group By tblErrors.AssetID) As ScanningError On tblAssets.AssetID =
      ScanningError.ID
  Left Join tblErrors On ScanningError.ErrorID = tblErrors.Teller

      And tblRegistry.Valuename = 'CCMCACHESIZE') SubQuery1 On

Order By tblAssets.Domain,
  tblAssets.AssetName

No prob. Hopefully this will help someone else trying to do the same. 

Also.. I updated the PS script to show the gigabytes value to include leading zero for single digits. This really helps when trying to sort by numbers.  So you shouldn't see things like this...
