How to monitor a file older than 15 minutes

I would like to monitor *.dat files in a directory, because it is possible that there are generated multiple random named .dat files. When the software has processed the .dat file, the file is gonna to be deleted by the software. So if a file stays in that folder longer for 15 minutes, there is possibly a problem somewhere.

How can I monitor this at best? The file sensor only can go in error if it exists, or if it not exists.

Hello,

Please have a look at this kb-article to monitor random named .dat files. Than you can set a limit for the "Oldest File Age" Channel.
