We have an implementation based on inotify in our project:


It has only been tested to work on directories.

However, as the docs say:

"Inotify monitoring of directories is not recursive: to monitor
subdirectories under a directory, additional watches must be created."

Our implementation is directed at handling few directories, so you
would need to optimize it to handle thousands of directories.
