Monitoring Virtual Guests Disk Space Usage

Hello,
I am running HP SIM 5 SP4 and VMM 2.02 on Windows 2000 server. I have two VM Hosts running ESX with multiple Windows 2003 SP1 guests. I would like a way to receive alerts on disk space usage for the guests. I can configure the disk space usage on the hosts, but that doesn't help me differentiate which guests are running out of space. Any help would be appreciated.

At this point there seem to be only CPU thresholds that can be set up.

But, ths Logical Disk storage can be picked up by the WMI interface and then it is logged in the database.
I use this, and a hand crafted report that picks up all disks that have more than 80 disk usage and then e-mails it to me. I run that weekly.

Another poster has installed the desktop (I think) Agents on the VM. That might add some additional thershold reporting.

Thanks for the reply. Would you be able to share the report you run so I can try to implement something similar?
