File Size Monitor

This template measures the size of a file at the given file path. The statistic is the file size in bytes.

Prerequisites

None.

Credentials

Windows credential with read access to the network share.

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.

File Size Monitor

This component monitor measures the size of a file at the given file path and then reports the file size in bytes as a statistic. This component monitor uses TCP/445 and UDP/445 ports.

This monitor cannot monitor files larger than 2 gigabytes in size.
