Files getting deleted automatically..No Idea??


I have a RHEL Machine on which some application is running.What Really point of astonishment is : In one of my application, I am finding few files from a directory getting deleted whenever transfer through sftp is carried out.Surprisingly, I can login to linux server through WinSCP running on Windows.And When I check secure logs at Linux Machine it throws some sftp subsystem error.What I can guess some application is killing the sftp service. But even though I can see i can access files through WinSCP.

As a whole, Can you people suggest me a Good GUI/ commandline Filesystem Monitoring tool. I googled and found inotify but if you can suggest some sound easy to install Filesystem MOnitoring Tool?

Need of File System Monitoring Tool?

I want to monitor complete File System through GUI/commandline.I can see that Someone is running a script under some sub-to-sub directory and its deleting few files. All I need is monitoring tool. Like I tried installing fspy and it does monitor the changes online.
But it has certain limitation like its unable to track who is really running the command, which sub-script its running, what files getting deleted and so on.

Anyone who can suggest for the same.

Are you thinking of something like Aide or samhain? They are both intended as security tools, but they monitor adding, deleting and changing files.
