is there a way under linux to find out directory with frequent writes and/or deletes?
I'm using Ubuntu and recently bought SSD. I moved /tmp to ramdisk and did some other tweaks to avoid wear. But I was wondering if there's a way to pinpoint hotspots in filesystem where files are often written. For example webserver's log directory with many appends every minute or user's download directory where he downloads gigabytes of stuff only to be moved elsewhere soon after finishing.
I came across
inotify which could probably do the trick but it seems it'd require lot of scripting which I'm not very familiar with :-/
