This check needs some configuration in the agent, as the agent needs to know the information about which files need to be sent. Please refer to fileinfo's manpage for information about setting up the agent.
The check also needs a configured file grouping pattern. The name of the file group is referenced in the check configuration as the item.
File grouping patterns combine a simple pattern based on
join a subset of the file names send by the agent into a file group. In
exclude pattern may be defined to exclude certain filenames.
Furthermore, the current time/date in a configurable format may be included in the pattern. The syntax is as follows:
format-spec is a list of time format directives of the unix date
$DATE:%Y%m%d$ is todays date, e.g. 20140127. A pattern
/var/tmp/backups/$DATE:%Y%m%d$.txt would search for .txt files with todays date as name in the directory /var/tmp/backups.
Configured name of the file group
One service is created for each fileinfo group.
