Is possible to read pml file in real time? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to send an alert when a filtered event occurs, is possible to make this reading the backing file while process monitor is running, or is there any way to know if an event occurs automatically

  • Real time is probably a little bit complicated.. it depends on the event..

    From Process Monitor ther is no way to send an alert based on a filtered event, but if the event is logged  you can monitor the corresponding Event log and may be you can send an alert..

    If the event is file related there are lot of APIs to handle file related events, and there are lot of sample around on system file/directory watcher..

    What event are you trying to monitor?

  • Thanks for the response.

    I want to know if chrome.exe has made file system calls to some file or folder (apart from the ones it opens by default, filtering these). For example when doing drag & drop.

    The objective is to modify the file when doing the reading, but for now I only want to notify that event.
