Hello,
We have a SQL backup process and I keep an eye on it using HM.

A process takes the .bak files on the SQL server, compresses them and shifts the compressed version offsite. It renames the original, uncompressed backup from

DBNAME_backup_201509121330.bak
to
DBNAME_backup_201509121330.COMPRESSED.bak

One of the ways I monitor the SQL backups is to count the number of .bak files without the COMPRESSED marker, and I presently use the file mask "*0.bak" to look for them

However I have just realised one of our SQL servers don't follow this rule and the 0 could be between 0 and 9.

Is there a way to use a regular expression, or some other function to search for a single value between 0-9? I cant see anything in the help menu

Thanks

I see 2 options

1) use 2 test items
-Master test to check for *.bak files,
-Dependant test to check for *COMPRESSED.bak file
then use Optional status processing (2nd dependant test) to calculate difference
E.g.
- set Warning status if ("%::master_test_name::Reply%" - "%SuggestedReply%")>100
- TuneUp Reply value: ["%::master_test_name::Reply%" - "%SuggestedReply%"]

2) use custom script and Shell Script or External test method

Thanks,
I will knock together a quick VBS script to do the job!
