Monitoring an NFS mountpoint on a NetApp box for changes

ar flag

I need to monitor an NFS mountpoint for changes (files written or created). I am running Linux (a RedHat variant to be precise). I also am a NetApp user (i.e., I don't have admin privileges on the NetApp box).

There are various filesystem monitoring packages out there, but I would prefer something that is known solid on RedHat and friends.

Something with python bindings is preferred.

Any ideas?

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
