    Linux-Unix File Count

    This monitor returns the number of files on the target computer.

    Note: Before using this monitor, the correct arguments should be set. This monitor requires the following arguments:


    perl ${SCRIPT} path_to_file1 [path_to_file2] ...
    where
    path_to_file1
    This is full path to the target file or files. Regular expressions are allowed.
    [path_to_file2] ...

     

    Additional arguments allow the monitor to get statistics for additional target files. The resulting statistics will be shown as the total number of all files in all arguments.

     

    Following is an example using the Scripts Arguments field:

    perl ${SCRIPT}  /tmp/prod*.log
    perl ${SCRIPT}  /tmp/prod*.log /tmp/prod*.err /var/log/status*
