Monitor Windows 2012 R2 CSV Volumes (Cluster Share Volumes IO/space and other metrics)
CSV Volumes have their own windows performance counters and can be used by resources owned by any of the Windows Cluster
The Disk I/O graph does not show the IOPS for clustered shared volumes as of now, however, the Analysis page does show metrics of CSV. Would be great to have the Disk I/O metrics of clustered shared volume on the dashboard graph
The monitor only monitors disk space for stand alone servers. I would like one stop in monitoring my sql landscape which would need to be able to see if there are mount points and / or cluster shared volumes where my database files are held. At this time I have custom metrics that measure Filegroup percent free, TempDB percent free and TX Log percent free. I would like to be able to monitor how much storage space I have to get a complete picture. Larger companies tend to use clusters, not stand alone servers so it makes sense to offer that as a feature if you want to stay competitive.

Since one can store database files on CSV-volumes, we consider monitoring free space on CSV-disks not a feature, but a necessity.
I cannot understand why this is not monitored.
Reply from support was : this FEATURE is currently not available in SQL Monitor... !!
You have some MVP's there : I am sure they know how to query for free disk space ?
This would be a key feature for capacity planning clusters.
This is very important IMO. CSV's are a huge feature that reduces the amount of time it takes to failover compared to normal shared disks.
Not being able to monitor these disks means we will need to re-evaluate if we want to continue to use SQL Monitor (shame as we have 25+ licenses)
This would be a very useful feature. CSV disk for cluster is something that is becoming more and more popular and we need SQL monitor to be able to monitor those volumes.
