iwatch – realtime filesystem monitoring program using inotify

iwatch is a realtime filesystem monitoring program. It’s a simple perl script to monitor changes in specific directories/files and send email notification immediately. It reads the dir/file list from a xml config file or via commandline and needs inotify support in kernel (Linux Kernel >= 2.6.13).

If you are using Debian/grml you can install a Debian package which is available in the grml repository. An ITP is pending as well (see Bug#383191), I hope iwatch is going into Debian soon.
