Changedfiles

http://changedfiles.org/
'changedfiles' is a framework for filesystem replication, security monitoring, and/or automatic file transformations--anything where you'd poll files or directories and then do something to them or send them somewhere else (or both). The difference is, the kernel tells you when they change, instead of you having to poll. It is also an easy real time FTP push mirror to one or multiple sites. 'changedfiles' has a kernel module (works with Linux kernel version 2.4) which reports to a device whenever a file on the filesystem changes, and a daemon which runs in user space and can be configured to do almost anything when a change to a file matching one of the patterns it looks for is reported.
