Title: Monitor Folder Size - One Email per Hour
Post by jeffschneidermarvi on Aug 10th, 2010 at 7:15pm
Hi, I am still evaluating this software to monitor my disk-to-disk backup sets.  When a folder gets to a certain size, I want an e-mail.  This seems to be fine, but once the size has been reached, I seem to get one e-mail every hour.  I have tried many different settings.  I tired using the polling method and setting to 43200 seconds, but I still get hourly emails.  What am I missing???

Hello Jeff,

Sorry, but currently you can not suppress those additional emails. As long as the condition is true, it will continue to alert you every hour.

Hi Gert - have you been able to update this plugin so that an email is not sent every hour?

Is there a workaround so that the email is only sent once for the same (unchanged) set of files?

Thanks


Wes

Nope, not yet.

As you can read in our newsletter ( http://www.gdpsoftware.com/news/en2010Q4.html ), WD is currently being worked at. I will see if we can add this option for the 4.7 release.

Ok great thanks Gert - if you're able to reply to this thread when you have made that update, that would be great. I'm using this feature on a computer at the moment and the sooner we can stop it sending an email every hour the better. Thanks again for all of your hard work, and a fantastic product!

Wonderful, thank you Gert - that is such a huge help. Your application software is by far the most useful we use.


Thank you


Wes
