GNU Direvent is a daemon that monitors file system directories for events, such as creating, deleting or modifying files. It can be configured to monitor different sets of directories for different events. When an event is detected, direvent calls an external program associated with it, supplying it with the information about the event and the location within the file system where it occured.

GNU Direvent provides an easy way to configure the system to react immediately if certain files undergo changes. This may be helpful, for example, to track changes in important configuration files.

The program aims to provide a uniform and system-independent command-level interface for file system events. The current version is known to work on GNU/Linux (kernels starting from v. 2.6.13) and BSD systems (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Darwin).

Prior to becoming GNU project, the program was known as dircond. Its releases from that time can be found here.
