KBI 311626 New Feature: System File Rule Is Enhanced To Monitor File Or Folder Changes Using Content CRC-64


Argent Advanced Technology 5.1A-1804-A and above


Monday, 26 February 2018


System File Rule used to monitor file or folder changes using last modification time

It is a lightweight and preferred option

However, some system file could be re-written periodically with the exact same content, and customer might not want to count that as file change

The new feature of monitoring file/folder using CRC-64 can be used to address some requirement

Instead of checking the last modification time, file content CRC-64 is computed and compared

Only if file content is changed, the file is regarded as changed

The new feature is implemented in Argent Advanced Technology 5.1A-1804-A

Technical Background

The issue is caused by coding error


Upgrade to Argent Advanced Technology 5.1A-1804-A or above
