fseventer - FileMon for OS X #
fseventer 2.6.2 [450k] Monitors filesystem changes - think "FileMon for OS X".
Update: "10.10 Yosemite is classified as unsupported till further notice. Last usable os is osx 10.9 Mavericks (Oct 2013)"
FSMonitor offers a modern, shareware replacement for OS X 10.11+:
A number of built-in Terminal options also exist:
- fs_usage - "report system calls and page faults related to filesystem activity in real-time" (leveraged by the above GUI tools)
- dtrace - "stands for 'Dynamic Tracing', a way you can attach 'probes' to a running system and peek inside as to what it is doing"
- opensnoop - "snoop file opens as they occur. Uses DTrace."
- iosnoop - "snoop I/O events as they occur. Uses DTrace."
