Flexible and Reliable Server and Network Monitoring

Monitor File System Events

With the file system sensor you can easily monitor the system for specific events. Simply specify certain criteria in the sensor:

  • What (which folder) shall be monitored?
  • Which events shall be monitored?
    • Create/add files
    • Delete files
    • Rename files
    • Change file attributes:
      • Size
      • Date
      • Security Attributes/Attributes

The sensor informs you automatically once, for example, files of a certain type are created or deleted in a monitored folder or when security attributes are changed.


For security reasons an administrator wants to be informed whenever file permissions for certain folders on a local network or on a network drive are changed. For this he creates a file system sensor. The sensor passively monitors a folder including all subfolders.

If: File permissions are changed in the monitored folder.
Then: Send email containing file name, time of change, and file path to the administrator.
