Real Time File Creation in Terminal


I was wondering if there is a command to show a real-time creation of files. I basically executed a command that will created thousands of files and takes a long time. I want to check if it is still creating additional files or if ti got frozen.
thanks in advance!

assuming you are using a loop to create thousands of files, probably you can just do a 'ls' after every creation.
The other options is use the -v ( verbose) option if it is available with the file creation command that you are using.
