Is there a way for logmon to give me an alert when it detects an existence of a file at a specified time?
Example: Send an alert if it detect a "test.log" at 4pm.
don't think logmon can do that.
dirscan can alarm if the number of files in a directory increases.
dirscan (File and Directory Scan) - CA Unified Infrastructure Management Probes - CA Technologies Documentation
nexec can be setup to run a command dir > dir.txt and then logmon can scan the file and alarm when it test.log is in dir.txt.

Confirmed "dirscan" probe can do what I need. UIM with all the probes seems difficult to remember, I would think that any file or folder monitoring would be under one probe, not two separate probes.
Thanks for your support.
Put the test in cron and write output to a file. Use logmon to watch the file.
Or maybe, put the test in a script including the time check. Then have logmon run the script every minute. Then process the output.
use nexec to run a pu command against logmon to run the profile. nexec can take a schedule. If the profile is inactive and run this way, it will work like it fired on a schedule.
There are many ways to do this.
