To monitor the folder on both local or remote server you should specify the path as follows: Drive:\FolderName ( Example C:\FolderName ).
For shared folder monitoring the format to specify the path is \\server\sharename
Besides monitoring files on the systems, you can also monitor the folders.You can track changes in folders based on the folder size, the number of files in a folder etc. Again, like file monitors, you can be notified if a specific change occurs. For instance, you might want to be notified if the folder size increases beyond a defined limit, if some files in a folder are missing etc. Configure meaningful templates in OpManager and apply them to devices on which you want the folders monitored. Monitor the following parameters on folders:
Configure the monitoring criteria for Folder/File monitoring conditions based on which you want to be notified:
Configure the following alerting options:
Having created a template with the alert criteria, you can now associate the template to the devices.
The monitor is added to the device and OpManager alerts based on the alert conditions configured.
