Trying to monitor file age

I want to monitor a logfile to ensure a process is running regularly with ipMonitor 10. It should send an alert if the logfile becomes more than 72 hours old. I added a File Property monitor to the server, but I'm not sure this is the right way to do this. The monitor has a '' option, but it is greyed out whether the option is checked or not. If I click the sample button, it fills in the last modified date. I can't use a date though.

Is this the right monitor type to use? And why is it greyed out?

I'm now trying to do the same thing, monitor the last modified date of a file.  However it doesn't matter if the option is checked or unchecked, the box is greyed out with n/a.  Is this a bug??

One more thing to note on the FILE PROPERTY monitor, even though "size" isn't checked, you cannot continue, OK or APPLY, until you enter any value into the field.

Hi chaldz, it looks like you opened a support ticket.  Dev is investigating and we'll report back here with our findings.
