Microsoft Dynamics NAV Task Scheduler - Monitoring




I want to monitor the TaskScheduler of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. It happens sometimes, that the entries of the taskscheduler stuck in an unknown state. Not ready and not finished and not terminated. So I googled a bit and found out, that I can modify the entries (in NAV called Codeunit) and give them another thing to do. maybe placing a file in a folder every 5 minutes. And now I want prtg to watch this folder (for every task another folder) - when the process of fileplacing stops, I want to get informed.

Is this possible to do?

I have some tools, which monitor folders for new files - but they don't monitor for "no new files after 5 minutes"

Dear Andre,

there is no dedicated sensor build into PRTG for this. However, the file sensor has a channel for the time difference since last modified. You could put limits on that channel to change the sensor status based on that. The folder sensor has similar channels.
