Is there an equivalent of Inotify in HP-UX ? We receive several files from MasterCard, Visa etc. which are stored in the file system. A file system event monitor like Inotify could of much use in this scenario.

Re: Inotify

The inotify is Linux kernel based and I am not aware of such functionality in the HP-UX kernel. You can come up with your own solution by utilizing a cron job that checks the filesystem for ariving files and possibly kick off a job that processes them. If it is just notification that you want, the tripwire product may be useful as well.
