I'm looking for some kernel-based notification of changes to my file
system. I've been looking at inotify, but it's not exactly what I want.
Basically I want to know if _any_ write occurs anywhere. I don't want
to register a whole bunch of files to watch, I just want to watch an
entire mount. When a file is changed (ie. a write operation occurs), I
then want to add that file or fd to a list in RAM. That's all.
I know this may be a lot of data, considering streams and devices, but I
can filter out /dev, /proc, etc. and just focus on "real" files.
Is there anything that can do this?
