    Polling for data from a text file

    Mike Hale

      So we have the issue where we'd like to monitor the mail queue from one of our Ironports.

       

      Unfortunately, Cisco doesn't provide any mail queue info (other than percent utilization, theoretically) via SNMP.

       

      This necessitates that we pull this information directly from the web console.  Which is fine...this is easily doable via Powershell.  The output can then be written to a text file for processing.

       

      Which brings me to Orion.  I need our install to parse this text file ever x minutes and put that information into the database.  I'd love for this to work like a normal poller, only instead of using snmp it uses a text parser.

       

      Is this possible?


      Thank you in advance!
