inotify_init1 - create and initialize an inotify instance
inotify_init1 is a system call that is used to create and initialize an inotify instance. It has one parameter, flags, which is used to pass flags for modifying the behavior of the inotify instance. If the flags are 0, then the instances is initialized with the default behavior.
The inotify API provides a mechanism for monitoring file system events. Inotify supports watching a single file, a directory tree, or recursively all subdirectories.
There are some drawbacks to using inotify API. For example, if an application is monitoring a lot of files or directories, then it may require a large amount of memory and kernel resources, as well as negatively impact the performance. Additionally, if too many watches are set up, the kernel may run out of inotify resources and fail the system call.

Example Use Case¶
Inotify API can be used to monitor file system events. For example, an application can detect when a file is modified, renamed, or deleted.
Due to the large memory and kernel resources requirements, large numbers of watches can adversely affect the performance of the system. Additionally, if too many watches are set up, the kernel may run out of inotify resources and fail the system call.
inotify_add_watch- add a file or directory watch to an inotify instance
inotify_rm_watch- remove a file or directory watch from an inotify instance
