    Question How?? Mount point email notification

    I have a small nettop headless install of Ubuntu running thats solely used for mounting and backing up my NAS to Crashplan. I'm looking for a way to get email notifications from my nettop when the mount points change. That way I informed right away that Crashplan is not backing up my NAS. Is there anyway of doing this??

    Thanks!

    a scheduled (cron) shell script to look at the current mounts and if there is a difference, mail you.

    It really depends on what your mounts should look like vs what they look like when there is an issue.

    Can you provide examples?

    When they are not mounted the mount points are just empty folders. I don't plan on putting anything in them ever.
