Network Eagle Checks

Monitoring the existence and modifications of a file [pro]

General information

This check monitors the existence and modification of a local file and also checks its content. It is possible to check a file packed in an archive. ZIP and RAR archives are currently supported.


Suppose we need to receive an e-mail notification whenever some file is modified. We create a file check and specify the name of the file on the Settings page. Then we select the “Fail if checksum changed” checkbox. On the Alerts page we create a Send Mail alert with the “On failure” and “On every occurrence” activation parameters and fill out the rest of the fields. We close the Options dialog box by clicking the OK button. Now an e-mail message will be sent each time the file is modified.

Control items

Except standard properties for this check you have to specify the next parameters:
