I have a request to perform the following test and am not sure Xymon can do
both parts of the request.  If so, can someone show me how?  I felt this is
a FILE test to see if the file exists and/or is empty.

This is their request:

*The test should be added as a procruntime test.*

*The test should look for the file /home/tomcat/alertbody.txt*

*If the file is not present, the test result is OK.*

*If the file is present, the test result is CRITICAL, and the contents of
alertbody.txt should be sent to alert recipients (if that is possible).*
