On a SharePoint 2013 farm I would like to get an alert when a Search Content Source crawl has taken more than a specific amount of time. Is there an easy way to set this up
1. Send alarm if content source “Local SharePoint Sites” crawl time is greater than 4 hours
2. Send alarm if content source “File Shares” crawl time is greater than 8 hours
I see MS has a crawl report and crawl logs
It does not look like the sharepoint probe is setup to read these and produce an alarm.
I would say this would need to be entered in as an ER.
I created the ER and it can be found here (Sharepoint Search Content Source Crawl alerting ). Please submit your vote.
