Get alarm if file exists?



I set up a sensor which triggers a file on a linux server; so far no problems. I get an alarm if the file does not exits (which is the case from time to time), BUT I want to get an alarm IF the file exists (just the other way round). Any suggestions?

Greetings Martin Juds

Dear Martin,

I'm afraid this can only be done with a self-written custom script sensor.

best regards.
