Depending on the frequency that you write to that file logwatch may be the easier solution: https://mathias-kettner.de/checkmk_logfiles.html
You may also want to look at writing a local check: https://mathias-kettner.de/checkmk_localchecks.html

Subject: [omd-users] Monitoring file

Hi all,

I made a python script that does a login to a custom server.
I would like to monitor a file that it can write.

The file will contain a string, Online

I can run this on the monitoring server itself using a cronjob or whatever.

Whats the best way to monitor the output of this ‘local file’ on the monitoring-server itself?

I do want to have Ok, Unknown, Critical for this and trigger notifications etc.

Kind regards,
