The below powerhsell script should work for the count.

$dir = gci c:\directory\directory
$count = $dir.count
if ($count -gt 10) {Send-MailMessage -to "user@domain.com" -Subject "Warning message" -from user@domain.com -smtpserver server.domain.com -body "message body"}

You can't use PowerShell directly to get the Linux stats. SNMP might indeed be supported, if you can locate the correct MIB path for your counters. That should be a different question, as it targets Experts not listening to PowerShell questions ;-).

Regarding the count, the above code shows some basics, but the loop is missing. I assume the task should run until 10 files were found, because sending a mail every minute won't be something you want to have implemented for sure.
while ( (get-childitem c:\folder\files*).Count -lt 10 )
{
   sleep 60
}
Send-MailMessage -To 'You@YourDomain.Com' -From 'You@YourDomain.Com' -SmtpServer mx.YourDomain.com -Subject 'File limit reached'

Open in new window

This will stop as soon as 10 files were found.
