Probe that can look at the growth of a file

Hey everyone,

 

I was wondering if anyone knows of a probe (or a way) that can look at the growth of a file every x minutes and if the growth changes, trigger an alarm.  I looked at the dirscan probe and it's close, but doesn't do exactly that I don't think.  For example, say I have a log file that I know grows 100kb every 30 minutes and all of a sudden, it jumps to 10mb.  I want to alert off of something like that.

 

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

 

Thanks!

 

Mike
