[Gluster-users] @devel - Why no inotify?

I thought about it a while back, haven't actually done it but I assume
using inotify on the brick should work, at least in replica volumes
(disperse probably wouldn't, you wouldn't get all events or you'd need
to make sure your inotify runs on every brick). Then from there you
could notify your clients, not ideal, but that should work.

I agree that adding support for inotify directly into gluster would be
great, but I'm not sure gluster has any mechanics for notifying clients
of changes since most of the logic is in the client, as I understand it.
