Scans text files for changes since the last interval. After the first interval, an event is raised if the number of lines matching the search criteria exceeds the threshold. Set Literal Match to "y" for an exact match to the Find string.
This knowledge script was designed to allow the scanning of files that change names. In particular some log files will change name according to the current date. Below is an explanation of how to use this function within the script.
The idea is that if you want a date to make up part of the file name, you use a % where the date should be.
So for a file called abc26062002.log, the file name should be abc%.log and the pattern should be ddmmyyy
The pattern must be something that is valid in vb - which there are a lot of valid variations.
