Subdirectory Availability and File Availability Checks
The subdirectory check
is used to monitor all the sub directories within a monitored directory. The user has the option to monitor all the sub directories or a particular sub directory [subdirectory name supports regular expressions] under the specified directory.
The file check
is similar to the subdirectory check. The file check is applied to files instead of folders within a directory. Here too, the user has the option to watch for either all the files or a particular file [file name supports regular expressions] within the specified directory.
The two checks come under the Directory checks category. When the configured event occurs, an alert is raised.
