File Alteration Monitor

FAM monitors files and directories, notifying interested applications of changes.

This package provides a server that can monitor a given list of files and notify applications through a socket. If the kernel supports dnotify (kernels >= 2.4.x) FAM is notified directly by the kernel. Otherwise it has to poll the files' status. FAM can also provide an RPC service for monitoring remote files (such as on a mounted NFS filesystem).
