Hello,

I have a software that works with file queue. In the nominal state, the number of file in a specific directory must be equal to zero. When a new request is submitted, a file is created, then deleted when the request has been proceeded.

Given this behavior, is it possible to do the following with PA Server Monitor: 1. Monitor than the amount of file in a given folder is not higher than a specified thresold 2. Monitor than the amount of file is not higher than 0 for more than a specified thresold

Regards.

Sylvain

Hi Sylvain,

Yes PA Server Monitor can monitor the number of files that are in a directory. The Execute Script Monitor would do that very easily. There are even some example scripts that you can use for your monitor.

Thanks

Hi Sylvain,

I use PA Monitor for this very purpose.. here is a sample VBScript that I use:

dim fso
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    dim fold
    set fold = fso.GetFolder("\SERVER.DOMAIN.LOCAL\d$\DataUpload")

    if fold.Files.Count > 100 then
        SendNotification = True
        Details = "DataUpload file count > 100 (currently " & _
            fold.Files.Count & ")"
    else
        SendNotification = False
    end if

I hope this helps you.
