Dear i92guboj,
Thanks for reply..

Do we need to download inotify tool and compile it ? OR

Does it comes with major distors like RHEL. Because I am using RHEL 5.3 where I could not find inotify executables.

How to check weather our kernel support inotify tools ? Do we need to compile any modules and insert to running kernel if it doesn't support inotify tools ?

Thanks again..

The package is usually called something like "inotify-tools", it can vary from distro to distro as said above.

The command line tools included in that package are not called "inotify", they are called "inotifywait" and "inotifywatch".

It should be shipped on most mainstream distros, but I have no experience with RHEL so I can't be sure.

The home site for the inotify tools is this:
http://inotify-tools.sourceforge.net/

Any up to date distro will support it. I guess that a good way to find that would be the existence of /proc/sys/fs/inotify/.
