DFSR Backlog Sensor



Hi all,

Does anyone have a simple sensor I can use to count the DFSR Backlog? I found one on a website using a PowerShell script, but it keeps returning 0 backlogs, even tho I know there 400k+ backlogged files

Hey, I tried the bottom one of the two, it keeps returning 0 files backlogged, even though I know there is at least 400k backlogged right now. The top one just shows the file can replicate but doesn't give me the actual count, which is what we want to monitor.

Any idea why the bottom script would show 0?

It's possible that the access rights are not correct and therefore the script is not able to read the backlog files.
I would also recommend to take a look at this article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/71356-guide-for-powershell-based-custom-sensors
