I set up a test folder on my windows workstation and it works fine for me.
OK for 0 files, WARNING for 1 file, CRITICAL for 2 files.
If you describe *exactly* what you did, we might be able to spot the problem.

Hi Jam,

That’s what I documented a while ago. Feel free to send me your  comments.

Filesystem Checks

File Count

To monitor the count of files in a directory do the following:

Select “*Parameters for discovered Services*” in “*Host and Service Parameters*” then “*File Grouping Patterns*” in “*Storage, File system and Files*”. Select the folder from the pull down menu at the bottom and then select “*Create Rule in Folder*”. In the pane “*Value*” give the Group a meaningful unique name and file the “*Include Pattern*” or even “*Exclude Pattern*” field.
Patterns with * or ? like

d:\spool\*

could be used.

Furthermore, the current time/date in a configurable format may be included in the pattern. The syntax is as follows: $DATE:format-spec$, where format-spec is a list of time format directives of the unix date command. *Example: $DATE:%Y%m%d$* is todays date, e.g. 20140127. A pattern of /var/tmp/backups/$DATE:%Y%m%d$.txt would search for .txt files with todays date as name in the directory /var/tmp/backups. Select Save at the bottom of the page to save the Group.

Select “*Manual Checks*” then “*Size, age and count of file groups*” in WATO. Choose a folder from the pull down menu at the bottom of the page and select “*Create Rule in Folder*”. In the “*Parameters*” pane type the former created Groupname in the field “**File Group Name” and select the options of the parameters.

    Hi all,

    is it possible to check if a folder is empty with check_mk?

    Something like, if a folder contains one file there will be a
    WARN, if it contains two files there will be a CRIT message.

    Best Regards Nils
