Need a tempdb alert for actual space used


I need an alert that sends a message when the actual tempdb usage is 80%. Our tempdb is pre-sized but I need to know when it close to filling up.

You might try something simple like:

select (size/maxsize)*100

from sys.sysfiles

where fileid = (select file_id from sys.dm_io_virtual_file_stats where database_name = 'tempdb')

Make that into a custom alert with a single value and set thresholds at 80 and perhaps 90 percent?
