Can you monitor a folder within a drive in Windows?

Postby Victor Pineda » Wed Feb 23, 2022 7:41 pm

Hi All,

I am using Nagios 3.4.1 and I need to monitor a folder on the D:\ drive of a Windows server and in turn trigger an alert if it has not received files in 15 minutes.
Is this possible with Nagios?
Path: D:\XXXArchives

If this is possible could you please help me how can I configure it?

Thanks in advance.

Here's one plugin from exchange that might do what you want. No doubt there are others.
I'd first check the existing plugins installed on your Windows hosts to see if one exists already that would work.
