File Age Monitor

This template determines when a file was last modified.

Prerequisites

None.

Statistic

The statistic is the number of elapsed hours since the file modification date.

Agent-less or Orion agent for Windows requirements

Implementation of these components relies either on WMI or windows file share access to the target machine.

Orion agent for Linux requirements

Python implementation leverages native filesystem access directly from the python script running locally on the target agent machine. Due to the configuration settings, switching between agent-less and Orion agent for Linux will not establish a correct connection as the file path in UNC format will not work on a Linux-based computer. For details, see Linux system configurations for component monitors.

Monitored Components

For details on monitors, see SAM Component Monitor Types.
