New story! Thoughts on Monitoring file changes with Linux over the network

  • Howtoforge Linux Howtos und Tutorials (Posted by bob on Feb 5, 2016 7:11 PM EDT)
  • Groups: Linux; Story Type: News Story
Monitoring a directory for changes with Linux is possible through the well-known mechanism inotify. With inotify it's possible to set a watch on a directory, configure it to watch events on the contents, and you'll receive messages on a file descriptor when something happens. This works perfectly when the directory is on local storage, like a hard drive, SSD or a USB drive, But it is not sufficient when the directory is on a network filesystem when the storage is on another computer. Another user working in the same directory, connected via the same or another filesystem, can remove a file and the watch you've set on it will not get notified.

The problem is, it may not choose the right process every time.

New story! Readers Say ‘No’ to Antivirus on Linux

Long before the end of the twentieth century, the antivirus guys were fighting whack-a-mole battle — and that was in the days before the bad guys had the sophistication to write malware that could hide, constantly rewrite itself to avoid matching a definition, or to return seemingly by magic after being deleted. There is just too much malware being created for even a hard drive loaded with definitions to handle. For a while it seemed as if heuristics were the answer, until it became obvious that much of what we do on our computers looks like bad behavior to a halfway effective heuristics program.
