inotail is a replacement for the 'tail' program found in the base installation of every Linux/UNIX system.
inotail is a replacement for the 'tail' program found in the base installation of every Linux/UNIX system. The project makes use of the inotify infrastructure in recent versions of the Linux kernel to speed up tailing files in the follow mode (the '-f' option).

Standard tail polls the file every second by default while inotail listens to special events sent by the kernel through the inotify API to determine whether a file needs to be reread.

Currently inotail is not fully compatible to neither POSIX or GNU tail but might be in the future.

Requirements:

· Linux kernel 2.6.13 or higher with CONFIG_INOTIFY enabled
· Standard C Library (tested with GNU libc but might work with others too)

What's New in This Release:

· inotail now outputs verbose file headers correctly when used in a pipe.
