It all depends on your linux installation. It must provide a way for hostmonitor to access the file. Samba is one such way.

So, there's no way other than windows file sharing (or emulation) to check for files?

Not yet. Now file sharing is the only way. HostMonitor 4.0 (will be available soon) supports remote agents those can be installed on remote systems. We already have agent for Windows platform. Agent for Linux is not ready yet, probably will be available in HostMonitor 4.10

I used the web server and some shell scripting for tests on a UNIX server.

I wrote a small shell script to pull apart the disk usage and flagged anything over 90%. Then I put the files in a web directory and used a "URL request" for each volume and checked the content of the file for the word WARNING.

I scheduled the shell script via cron to run every 5 minutes.

I'm planning on testing more things (like Perl scripts that run all the time, etc.), just haven't yet.
