then I have monit check the file size of the q_size_*
(for a tree depth = 0) :
du -d0 /path/to/dir | cut -f1 > /var/db/monit/dirname
... has the file dirname with the number of bytes in the tree at and belwow /path/to/dir
so you monit the file size of file /var/db/monit/dirname

This is not possible with Monit’s ‘check directory’ (it would be a nice thing to add in the future though). One way to do this now is to use ‘check program’ with ‘/usr/bin/du -s <dir>’ and return a status accordingly to if a threshold was reached or not

Any hint to monitor the size of a directory?
Googling about it doesn't return anything that I like.
Thanks a lot for your time.
You could also use a partition and mount it to that folder and use disk usage instead but perhaps that is one of the things you don't like? You may be able to add mount options like noexec and nosuid though. -- To unsubscribe: https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/monit-general
