Inotify - Monitor file system operations
|Distribution: ||official part of Check_MK|
|Supported Agents: ||Linux|
This check evaluates the data reported by the mk_inotify plugin on the target system.
This plugin requires the python module pyinotify to be installed.
Inotify allows you to monitor certain file operations on the target system. E.g. you will
get a message for specific operations like access, open, create, delete, modify.
In the agent bakery you can configure the files and folders to be monitored and specify in
which operation you are interested in.
You can configure levels relating to the age of the last operation.
So you can check last modified age for example.
One check is created for every explictely specified file and folder in the mk_inotify.cfg.
