Is there anyway for Splunk to monitor files in a directory? I do not need the content of the files to be analysis (since it is not a log file) but more to list new files in a directory.
The specific scenario is that I am creating a operation monitoring dashboard. One of the panel will contain random documents which contains security alerts from various sources. The format of the file could be PDF, random text in a text file, email etc - which they do not have a structure format. It is not an XML feed from external. I want to make the operations team aware that an alert come it from authoritative source for further analysis.
What will be the best way to do that? Thank you in advance for your input.

Is there any good training or resources for ESS? My focus is on utilising ESS to develop relevant management dashboard instead of administrating ESS.
I had a bit of a scenario where the person who looks after it left the company. I have also contacted Splunk sales locally and they can only point me to the general Splunk training. I am also aware there is an ESS admin training but I am looking for something similar to the "Using Splunk" training.
Can anyone be able to point me in the right direction? I have tried the splunk site but can only find a 2 pages product brochure, 3 high level overview videos and other promotional material on the splunk site. Contacting sales also does not help as mentioned above.
