Getting Data In

Folder Monitoring

Path Finder

I would like create a monitor/alert that looks for a *.msg file in a particular folder on the quarter hour. Any advice for the Inputs config would be appreciated.

Anything in here missing to answer your question?

Splunk does not do 'timed' monitoring. It can monitor your folder and pick up any *.msg file when it appears/changes. If you need to make sure that data is only indexed every 15 minutes (use-case?), setup a cronjob that copies the file "on the quarter hour" into the folder monitored by splunk and consider using a batch input, if your file size justifies it.
