Detect 'File movers'


#1

Hey all,
I’m trying to find tools to help identify what I call ‘file movers’ -> files that are created/deleted at any given time that have certain sizes (i.e. > 1mb for example), and files that have growth (i.e. > 5% for example). Pre-identification of the files should not be required, although the directory in which files to watch would be fine.

Does nagios have something similar to this? My use-case actually isn’t production, I would rather have a tool to identify these during development of applications – however, if this actually can be done in production, that would be great as well!

thanks,
-D

I don’t think nagios has something like this. but it shouldn’t be too difficult to create a couple of shell scripts which do this…
