I have files monitoring system based on Linux inotify.
When CLOSE_WRITE or MOVED_TO inotify events occur on file it's processed somehow.
The problem is that some clients put temporary files via sftp and then rename it to real files name.
Inotify catch only CREATE event on those files because sftp server do link/unlink instead of rename.
Is any way to setup sftp server to prevent link/unlink for rename and do only posix rename?
RHEL 4, Kernel 22.214.171.124, OpenSSH_3.9p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7a
Thank you in advance for any help.
