% Free

The percentage of space not allocated to any objects.

% Used

The percentage of space allocated to objects.

Can Grow

Indicates whether the file can grow.

Database

The database’s name provides a unique identification of the database.

DBID

The database’s ID provides a unique identification of the database.

File Count

The number of files in each file group.

File Group

The name of the file group to which the file belongs.

Free Size

The amount of unused space, measured in megabytes.

Size

The size of the file, in megabytes.

Type

The type of file group (for example: data or log).

Used Size

The size used by the database file (in megabytes).

Files

This collection displays a detailed list of all data and log files within a SQL Server instance.

% Free

The percentage of space not allocated to any objects.

% Used

The percentage of space allocated to objects.

Auto Grow

Whether the file can grow automatically as it fills.

Can Grow

Indicates whether any of the files in the transaction log can grow.

Data Files Used Percentage Threshold

A flag indicating a threshold for the used percentage of space within a data file. When this percentage exceeds the predefined threshold, an alarm will be invoked.

Database

The name of the specified database.

DB and File

The database name, concatenated with the database file's name.

DBID

The database’s ID; provides a unique identification of the database.

File

The name of the data file.

File Group

The name of the file group to which the file belongs.

Free Size

The amount of unused space, measured in megabytes.

Growth Increment

Indicates the amount by which the file will grow every time, if the autogrow option is enabled. For example: if the data file’s initial size is 1 MB and it has to grow to a final size of 11 MB, setting the Growth Inc. parameter to 2 MB causes the file to grow five times, each time by a 2 MB increment.

Growth Remaining

The number of times a log file can grow automatically before the file is almost full and can no longer automatically grow enough to relieve the problem.

Growths Remaining Data File Threshold

A flag indicating a threshold for the number of times the data file can AutoGrow until it is unable to grow anymore.

Growths Remaining Log File Threshold

A flag indicating a threshold for the number of times a log file can AutoGrow until it is unable to grow anymore.

Log File Used Percentage Threshold

A flag indicating a threshold for the used percentage of space within a log file.

Path

The path of the database file.

Size

The file’s size.

Type

The type of file group. For example, data or log.

Used Size

The amount of space size used by the database file.
