Folder Modified Age

The current "Folder" sensor will tell you the newest and older file in the folder, but no details about when the folder was modified.

I wish to use this to monitor a program that writes things to a temp folder, then passes them on. (the file only stays for a few seconds) If i know the modified age, then I assume the program is running.

Yes, I know I can have a script for this (I write 100's of scripts for PRTG), but think this should be part of the stock sensor.

Feature request?

Dear Andrew

With the file and folder sensors, we intentionally cover the most used options only. The reason is that no matter how many extra options we would implement, there would always be requests to do more complex searches. We rather have a simple-to-use standard sensor. In our opinion, the real solution would be to offer a more streamlined integration of custom sensors. But before that, we think we should overhaul other parts of PRTG first.
