    hi all,
    i am trying to set up the folder count in D:\SLAN\apache-tomcat-8.5.29\webapps\leasing\WEB-INF\auditlog
    apart from file there are folders created under auditlog dir.
    Is this possible to monitor folder counts via dirscan?

    Hi Sid,

    Unfortunately dirscan cannot count the number of directories/folders but you should be able to use nexec probe or logmon with a script via a command like the following (in thi cas using Powershell on Windows):

    PS C:\> Get-ChildItem -Directory | Measure-Object | Select-Object -Property Count

    Hi Steve,
    Thank you, But i am really not experienced with nexec, how do we run that? how Can i get notified when folder count increases a particular threshold?
    or via logmon?
    does this need to be used through command in logmon?

    I would suggest running the command in logmon as it provides more functionality and you can use a regex to parse the results and generate alarms when necessary.

    Hi Sid,

    Here is a working solution using logmon and a Linux command. You can adjust to your particular needs to count folders in a specific directory, in this example, just /:













    For a command on Windows here is an example, something like this:

       cmd /C netstat -an|findstr "4800"

    Best Regards,
    Steve

    If on Unix/Linux, something like this:

    find <path> -mindepth 1 -maxdepth 1 -type d | wc -l
