Registration Details

  • Name: direvent
  • System Name:  direvent
  • Type: Official GNU software
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later


Direvent is a daemon that monitors file system directories for events, such as creating, deleting or modifying files. It can be configured to monitor different sets of directories for different events. When an event is detected, direvent calls an external program associated with it, supplying it with the information about the event and the location within the file system where it occured.

Direvent provides an easy way to configure the system to react immediately if certain files undergo changes. This may be helpful, for example, to track changes in the important configuration files.

Other Comments:
