so I'm trying to start using lsyncd for a more up to date backup system.
the problem that i have run into is that the directory that i have to backup contains more than 250,000 items and i would like to increase the watch size naturally to something like 300,000 watch items, a number that the architects in the office wont reach for a long time. so when i go to do that i access the watch plain text file via:
sudo gedit /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches
and change to 300,000. I hit save but even as
sudo it wont let me save the darn file.
I have tried doing the same operation while the daemon is off then starting it, check it, still not changed.
the exact error that I get is:
Could not create a backup file while saving /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches
so my question is how to effectively change that file's contents from 8192 to 300,000
