Hi,

I am working on file collector activity. If there is no files in the directory for 2 days, then i need to get alert.

How can i make this possible?

In file collector, I will check 'process missing file'. And then alert activity. But in between my file collector and alert activity what i need to do?

Important Note: In file collector activity, we scheduled for each 2 hours daily. So per day it will check the directory for 12 times. And so 24 times for 2 days. After this check, if no file is there in my directory, i need to notified.

Please help me with this!

Thanks and Regards,

Partha.

Hi,

If you're on Linux: make a new js activity and paste this in, put after scheduler activity or anywhere really:

var DIR = '/absolute/path/to/collector/dir';

var DAYS_UNTIL_THINGS_START_LOOKING_SUSPICIOUS = 2;

var modified = new Date();

modified.setTime(execCommand('stat -c %Y ' + DIR)[1] * 1000);

if((new Date() - modified) / (86400 * 1000) > DAYS_UNTIL_THINGS_START_LOOKING_SUSPICIOUS)

  logError('Error: Collector directory last updated too long ago: ' + modified);

Thanks,

Hi Partha,

Answer to your two questions are:

1) Yes, vars.recCount works if there's any fie, it will give you value greater than zero.

2) You can set option value using:

var myOption=GetOption("myOption");

setOption("myOption",myOption+1);

Thanks,

Hi,

I am not using Linux.

In my case, A file will generate for every 1 hour in SFTP. So i need to notify when there is no file for 2 days. My file name is like eg: abcd* (abcd_followed by 6 digit random number. so i gave abcd* in file collector).

I have created a option "myOption" (type integer; value 0)

Below is my workflow:

i have 2 questions. My questions are,

1) In test activity, I have given vars.recCount > 0, then enable 'True'.

As i don't know my exact file name, i have given vars.recCount > 0. Will this work?

2) If file exist, i will make option value as 0. But for every 1 hour, if file is not there, then i need to do increment. How can i increment my option value. Either like SetOption('myOption',myOption+1) or someother thing?

Please help me with this!

Thanks and regards,
