    I am not a programmer and just know enough carry on a half-way intelligent conversation. I am learning and going through a few self help programming guides though my primary strengths are networking and computer hardware.

    That being said, I need help writing a script for a project I am working on at work. I need to monitor a log file that is constantly increasing in size and be notified (preferably through email) if the file stops increasing in size. I thought maybe one way would be to monitor the timestamp attribute and if, for example, it is older than say 30 seconds or 1 minute to send the notification. Does this make sense or would there be a better way to do this?

    What I was thinking was doing something like this:

    check file stored -file c:fileslogsmonkeylog.log -timestamp
    if timestamp > 1 min then alert

    Can someone please help me write this script?

    Thank you!

    Can you tell us what operating system you are using (and any preferences on scripting language)?
