First off, I'm very new to scripting. I would like to create a script that will help me monitor the logs for one of our applications. Instead of checking the log directory everyday, I would like to be notified if a log file was not created for a particular day. These logs are on a Windows Server 2008 R2. If anyone can provide some info to get me started I would greatly appreciate it.
And if it is just a plain old log file, is there a standard naming convention?
Are you going to run this interactively or as a scheduled task?
How are you expecting to be notified?
You really do need to provide more information if you are looking for useful suggestions.
