I recently had a problem (solved) where scan files were not being processed in a timely manner and I had a backlog of a couple of thousand files. I wanted to monitor the directory to see if/when the problem would reoccur. At first I just kept a window open for the directory but that generates network traffic constantly. So I write a small VB.NET program that will monitor the directory at a specified time interval and graph the results and save the results to a CSV file for later analysis. It was a slow day at work. The program could be used to monitor any directory. You probably need to have some version of dotnet (4 or 4.5?)
I nor Harvard University take any responsibility if this programs causes any damage to your environment.
