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)

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.
