We have an overnight batch process/cron job (not to be confused with DOS batch scripts), where we run a task once every 24 hours. At the end of the task it either writes a new daily file for success, or does not write a file (failure). For example, on a successful run it writes a file called 'my_process_YYYYMMDD.txt' (where YYYYMMDD is the current date). If it fails, no file is written.
How do you suggest we use PRTG to monitor that the task has run correctly?
Do you know of a different approach that would allow PRTG to monitor a batch/cron job (although it is on Windows)?
