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.
