Configure an event monitoring tool (such as inotify) for notifying processes about filesystem events, such as file creation, deletion, and updates.
The Linux system puts a limit on the number of inotify watches assigned to each user.
To increase the limit, edit etc/systctl.conf by adding the
fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 524288
Run the following command.
$ sudo sysctl -w fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288
