This project provides an Open Source and multi-threaded file monitoring tool for Linux
With Fido you can monitor any file for changes, in both modification time and content. When a change is detected, Fido will execute a user-defined application.
The application has been designed to recognize log file rotation and immediately start monitoring from the beginning of the new file.
Fido has been originally designed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but it also works with other Linux operating systems.

What's New in This Release:
- When a file is in use by another program, this release no longer treats that condition as a failure. This change was made to reduce false positive alerts.
