Here's a plugin/script that can monitor folder size(Windows OS):

Here's a thread detailing how to use it with NSClient++:

Let us know if you have additional questions.

Thanks.
i already implemented it.

The second phase is more complicated and i will need to ask your help again :-)

I would like to monitor few folders size every 2-3 seconds.
Is it doable?
How can i implement that kind of configuration?

And another thing.
It looks like prefdata is not being generated.
How can i fix it?

Thanks in advanced,
Amit

Nagios Core isn't very good at handling checks that need to run more frequently than once every minute or more.

You could explore submitting the results of this check passively. Here's some docs for that:
https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nagioscore/docs/nagioscore/4/en/passivechecks.html
https://docs.nsclient.org/howto/nsca/#passive-checks

Performance data needs to be submit to Nagios Core in a specific way as detailed in the Nagios Plugin Development Guidelines:
https://nagios-plugins.org/doc/guidelines.html#AEN200

This plugin does not seem to provide performance data and would need to be modified to do so.
