    We have configured a file age watcher with the DIRSCAN probe and there is a difference in the suppression key format depending on what options are selected.  We parse the Profile Name out of the suppression key to send in the alert message, but the content is different.

     

     

    If the "watch age of individual files" option is selected then the suppression key is in this format:
    Suppression Key: <PROFILE NAME>/<PATH TO FILE>/age_of_file

     


    If the "watch age of oldest files" option is selected then the suppression key is in this format:
    Suppression Key: dirscan/<PROFILE NAME>/age_of_file

     


    I suggest to make the suppression key format consistent for each alert option.  In our case all of the DIRSCAN file age alerts should send the suppression key in this format:

     

    Suppression Key: dirscan/<PROFILE NAME>/age_of_file
