    Dear Expert,

    I will like to monitor the following file....

    1) To monitor the file's modified date. Should there be no update for 15 mins – Trigger major alarms - Can it be done using dirscan probe?

    2) To monitor the file when there are 'No Ping Response' for 30 mins – Trigger minor alarms -


    00:10     ******** No Ping Response     ß System detect and start monitoring

                 …           ******** No Ping Response    

                 ..           ******** No Ping Response    

                 00:40    ******** No Ping Response     à Flag alert

    The above can be done using logmon and nas profile?

    1. It is possible via dirscan.
    2. It is possible nas auto operator with overdue age setting.

    1. It is possible via dirscan. --- Can it be done using age of file? 
    2. It is possible nas auto operator with overdue age setting. - using logmon to scan the keyword and the overdue age... However, i can only trigger when there is ping response alert... Any suggestion to it?

    Yes looks like dirscan and do this.

    Create and Configure File Integrity Profiles
    This section describes the minimum configuration settings required to configure the dirscan probe for file integrity monitoring. The probe is configured to monitor the integrity of files to notify you when the file or files are modified.

    oh and for the other problem 'No Ping Response'
    have you considered monitoring the device directly instead of a file recording the monitoring
    such as with icmp

    Oh.. I do not think ICMP can work.
    I am monitoring using the key work 'PING RESPONSE' inside the notepad..

    Logmon would be the probe to use to detect text in a log file.
