nagiosxi plugin to monitor file content

Post by apteancloud »

Hi Team,

We have a requirement on one of our Windows machines to Monitor Text/log files for specific content in the file and give output.

Basically, we will get an output file(consisting of numeric values 0,1,2,3) from one of the job scripts in .txt format and we have planned to monitor the file based on it, such that
0 = Ok
1 = Warning
2 = Critical

Could you guys please suggest which plugin suits the above requirement on Windows machine with NSclient++ agent :)

Thanks in Advance
