Monitor Linux file system events with inotify

Anonymous Reader writes "Inotify is a file system event-monitoring mechanism slated for inclusion in upcoming Linux kernels that is designed to serve as an effective replacement for dnotify, which was the de facto file-monitoring mechanism supported in older kernels. Inotify is a powerful, fine-grained, asynchronous mechanism ideally suited for a variety of file-monitoring needs including, but not limited to, security and performance."
