Win32_PerfRawData_PerfDisk_PhysicalDisk class

The Win32_PerfRawData_PerfDisk_PhysicalDisk raw performance data class provides raw data from performance counters that monitor hard or fixed disk drives on a computer. Disks are used to store file, program, and paging data and are read to retrieve these items, and written to record changes to them. The values of physical disk counters are sums of the values of the logical disks, or partitions, into which they are divided.

This class represents the Physical Disk object in System Monitor. The WMI source of its data is the high-performance Performance Counter Provider. The original data source is the PerfDisk performance library. The corresponding formatted data class is Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfDisk_PhysicalDisk. Data is dynamically provided for this class from the performance library object by the WmiPerfInst provider.

Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP:  WMI data for this class is supplied by the Performance Counter Provider.

The following syntax is simplified from MOF code and shows all inherited properties, including the Frequency and Timestamp properties required for class display in System Monitor. For more information about required property qualifiers, see Property Qualifiers for Performance Counter Classes. For more information about CounterType values, see WMI Performance Counter Types.

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Short textual description for the statistic or metric. This property is inherited from CIM_StatisticalInformation.

CurrentDiskQueueLength
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: CounterType (65536) , DefaultScale (1) , PerfDetail (100)

Number of requests outstanding on the disk at the time the performance data is collected. It includes requests in service at the time of the snapshot. The value represents an instantaneous length, not an average over a time interval. Multi-spindle disk devices can have multiple requests active at one time, but other concurrent requests await service. This property may reflect a transitory high or low queue length. If the disk drive has a sustained load, the value will be consistently high. Requests experience delays proportional to the length of the queue minus the number of spindles on the disks. This difference should average less than 2 for good performance.

All classes derived from Win32_Perf are designed to be used with a refresher object. For more information about how to create and use a refresher object in C++, see Accessing Performance Data in C++. For more information about how to create and use a refresher object using scripts, see Refreshing WMI Data in Scripts.

The performance class and property qualifiers determine how to interpret the class data. For more information, see Class Qualifiers for Performance Counter Classes and Property Qualifiers for Performance Counter Classes.
