Maldet Realtime Monitoring shows "no inotify process found"
« on: January 06, 2015, 02:42:17 am »
Maldet is a very good malware scanner for linux. Maldet comes with a feature called Realtime Monitoring, where you can monitor directories in your system. Maldet uses inotify for this purpose. To start Realtime monitoring you can execute the command

Code: [Select]
maldet -m /path/to/directory
However  it is noted that in some servers when you try Realtime Monitoring, it gives you following error

no inotify process found, check /usr/local/maldetect/inotify/inotify_log for errors.

To solve this you have to add a softlink for inotifywait

Code: [Select]
ln -s /usr/bin/inotifywait /usr/local/maldetect/inotify/inotifywait
Now run the monitoring command and you can see it working.
