# Datasource to poll for number of files in a UNC path?

## Question

I am looking to poll ~20 UNC paths for to count the total number of files respectively and display in a simple graph widget.  Is this something LM can do natively?

You can do this fairly easily with a powershell:

$path = '\\##system.displayname##\path\to\count' (get-childitem$path).count

If you need different paths / system, you'll have to provide a hash table of those relationships somewhere.  Either as a text file on a server accessible from the Collector, the collector itself, or hardcoded into the DataSource.  It will need to come in as a "Gauge" value rather than a counter.
