  check_file_age [-w <secs>] [-c <secs>] [-W <size>] [-C <size>] [-i] -f <file>
  check_file_age [-h | --help]
  check_file_age [-V | --version]

  -i | --ignore-missing :  return OK if the file does not exist
  <secs>  File must be no more than this many seconds old (default: warn 240 secs, crit 600)
  <size>  File must be at least this many bytes long (default: file size is ignored (0 bytes))

  Both <secs> and <size> can specify a range using the standard plugin syntax
  If any of the warning and critical arguments are in range syntax (not just bare numbers)
  then all warning and critical arguments will be interpreted as ranges.
  To use range processing the perl module Monitoring::Plugin must be installed
  For range syntax see
  It is strongly recommended when using range syntax that all four of -w, -W, -c and -C are specified
  otherwise it is unlikely that the size test will be doing what is desired
