I need real time monitoring in a folder to ensure that there is no file older than 15 minutes.

New Member

Currently, I have a setup ftp to drop a file in a folder which will be later moved out from the current folder to be processed.
The threshold is 1 and there shall not be any file present in the folder older than 15 mins.
How can I monitor the folder to ensure the file does not stay in the folder for more than 15 mins and it should alert if it stays longer than 15 mins.

fyi: running on Windows platform

I think that it can be realized by shortening the monitoring interval with fschange.
For fschange read the notes in the document.

How to check on the file if it is there for more than 15 min?
Should it be done by a script?

Rather than getting the log, you can set the file's presence check and the monitoring interval. So I think that fschange is good.

I think that you can realize the time until deletion by alert for 15 minutes.
