File Age Monitor

The File Age Monitor is a SAM component monitor that is also available as a SAM template that can determine when a file was last modified. Using ports 445 (TCP) and 445 (UDP), it tracks the number of elapsed hours since the file modification date.

Statistic

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

Agent-less or Orion agent for Windows requirements

Windows credentials with read access to the network share and file.

WMI or Windows file share access to the target machine.

Orion agent for Linux requirements

Python implementation leverages native file system access directly from the Python script that runs locally on the target agent machine.

To leverage this monitor against a Linux system, the Orion Agent for Linux is required. This means that the Linux machine you plan to monitor must have the Linux agent installed, and that the node is managed using the agent within the Orion Platform.
