Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you wish to cancel any alert triggered on the OldestModifiedFileElapsedTime, LastModifiedFileElapsedTime and LongestTimeFileRemainsInFolder parameters when no file is present in the monitored folder.

What does it fix?

A new configuration variable, /MASAI/SENTRY8/recessTimeParametersWhenFolderIsEmpty, was added to cancel irrelevant alerts on the 'Time' parameters. When the variable is set to 1, the OldestModifiedFileElapsedTime, LastModifiedFileElapsedTime and LongestTimeFileRemainsInFolder parameters are deactivated and reactivated when no file is present in the folder. They will not be populated until a file is added to the monitored folder.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to the $PATROL_HOME/lib/psl or %PATROL_HOME%\lib\psl directory on the server where the PATROL Agent runs:
    • SW_sentry_folders.lib
  2. Restart the PATROL Agent for the patch to take effect. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
