HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Monitor file changes using the filemonitor utility

Monitor changes in files with an easy-to-use utility command

Use the filemonitor utility to check for changes of files (files that were either created or modified). This could be useful when, for example, you want to make sure that a file exists before running a job that processes that file. By defining a job that runs the filemonitor utility, you can implement file dependency, that is, a relationship between a file and an operation in which specific activity on the file determines the starting of the operation.

You can use the filemonitor utility as a stand-alone command, or you can set the filemonitor keywords as additional parameters for the start condition of a job stream, either in the Workload Designer or from the composer command line. For more information about the start condition, see Condition-based workload automation .
