You can launch the following VBScript through the application scheduler (e.g. every 1 minute) to be notified when the size of a file exceeds a configurable limit.
Note: The file needs to be saved with the .vbs extension and called it through cscript.exe.
You can configure the file with the FILE_NAME variable, and the maximum size of the file with the MAX_FILESIZE_IN_BYTES variable. Please note that the file size needs to be specified in bytes.
' Checks the size of a single file ' ' Returns 0 if the file size is below the max size, or returns 1 ' if the size exceeds the max size. Check return code through %ERRORLEVEL%. Option Explicit Dim exitCode : exitCode = 0 Dim objFSO, objFile ' Set your values here Const FILE_NAME = "C:\logs\cc.log" Const MAX_FILESIZE_IN_BYTES = 10485760 ' 10 Mb Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set objFile = objFSO.GetFile(FILE_NAME) If objFile.Size > MAX_FILESIZE_IN_BYTES Then exitCode = 1 End If Wscript.Quit exitCode
