   Package name: loggedfs
        Version: 0.5
Upstream Author: RĂ©mi Flament  <rflament at laposte.net>
            URL: http://loggedfs.sourceforge.net/
        License: GPL
    Description: LoggedFS is a fuse-filesystem which can log every operations 
in the filesystem (open, read, write, chmod, chown, remove, etc...). The 
configuration file allows to logs operations only for certains files with a 
regexp.

Would be useful for many things, including figuring out why a laptop's 
harddrive is spinning up!

The example log appears to show at least the process name, user, and filename 
being accessed on the filesystem:

17:29:35 (src/loggedfs.cpp:136) getattr /var/ {SUCCESS} [ pid = 8700 kded 
[kdeinit] uid = 1000 ]
17:29:41 (src/loggedfs.cpp:136) getattr /var/ {SUCCESS} [ pid = 10923 ls uid = 
1000 ]

Thanks!
	C.

This can be achieved using tools already in Debian.
Install blktrace [1], and try:

blktrace -d /dev/sda -o - | blkparse -i -

	I think blktrace would work for my situation, checking for any program that 
writes to the harddisk.
	But some advantages of loggedfs are:
	It takes as an input a directory, not a device. This makes it more flexible 
(for purposes other than my own).
	It is a fuse filesystem, so it might not require root permissions unlike 
blktrace. (I haven't actually tried loading it as non-root.)
	It doesn't require debugfs compiled into kernel.  It doesn't require 
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IO_TRACE turned on.
	It looks like blktrace might report more events.  I'm not sure though.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of loggedfs back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting loggedfs, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 507658 ITP: loggedfs -- a fuse filesystem which can log every performed operation
 owner 507658 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <507658@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
