Getting Data In

Load File At Same Time Everyday Regardless Of Changes

Communicator

Just as it states. Is there way to monitor a file and reload it everyday even if it has not changed? Only once per day however.

Thanks!

My first though is "why?"... after that, I'd say define a small scripted input to run every 86400 seconds that writes the file content to stdout, something like this:

cat /path/to/file

I ended up automating a cp cmd and adding the date on the end of the file.

cp <origfilepath> <newfilepath>_`date +"%Y%m%d"`.csv

The easiest way to do this is via chrontab but we use other means (autosys).

I also need to use the sourcefile name in the crcSalt as well in inputs.conf

crcSalt = <SOURCE>

To answer the why it's a list that is maintained, however we need the ability to go back in time and view the state of the list on any particular date. I was thinking that as well but was hoping there was a better way using inputs.conf or similar setting.
