E-mail alert including logfile
Jan 19th, 2013 at 10:11am
 
Watchdirectory is a great product which we use on a couple of servers!
We have different jobs and they all work beautifully.

One question though regarding the warnings and errors e-mail messages that can be sent as a result of the job process. It is very nice to receive these but it would be great if they also could include the job log file as an attachment. We have eg. a auto extract job using 7-zip set up and it monitors all files in a specific directory including all subdirectories. If the zip-file that is to be uncompressed is corrupted I get an e-mail message alerting me about this. But the content is only something like this:

7-Zip reported errorcode 2 during uncompression
Date/Time: 19.1.2013 3:26:55

If I want to see exactly which zip-file it is that is corrupt I have not found any other way than to browse down into the job log directory for this job and find the log file with the same timestamp as when the error occured. Since this logfile is specific to this actual event it would be very helpful to receive it as an attachment to the e-mail message sparing me the tedious task of location the error.

Thanks for a great product!

mmm, I think I can include the filename that is causing problems. I will see what I can do for the next beta.

Hi, thank you for the positive reply.

Any news on when this option could be available? Seems like it didn't make it to the last beta.

It is on the list of things to implement for the next beta which I hope will be somewhere next week.

Hi,

The feature is implemented but currently we are waiting for an outside developer to implement a few fixes in his code. We received a new build from him yesterday but found a few small issues while testing. He promised a new build tomorrow or friday.

Sorry to keep you waiting.

OK. I can verify that this is working fine in 4.7 beta 5.

Thank you!
