Subject: Way to monitor IP address change?...
Date: Sunday 13th April 2008 10:14:34 UTC (over 10 years ago)
Hi there, Is there a way to monitor IP-address changes without using polling? In other words; is there some kind of event mechanism in the Linux kernel with which I could implement this more elegantly? From user space I can use all kinds of scripting methods to monitor the IP-address of a certain interface or build a program that constantly polls for IP-addresses. I have a network device driver that provides a network interface, and a test application that sends packets to this network interface. But suppose I change the IP-address of this interface; what would be the best way for the test application to monitor/get hold of this change?
