How to monitor whether a file is created on a particular time daily?

Hi,

My requirement is to monitor a file in a Linux server which is daily created between 6:30 am and 6.40 am.

This means, daily a new file will be generated at 06:30 am. How to monitor this using a file system monitoring extension?

Thanks

Dharini

Hi @dhariniu , good day.

One option is you to use the metric filechecker.files_age, to alert if file age is higher than 24h (86400 seconds).

So, if the file is not updated/created in 24h (daily) you will get an alert.

Try and let us know.
