We have web servers that need files monitored for changes. Altogether there is about 5gb of data but we just want to monitor things like PHP and .net stuff.

SCCM 2012 is installed (with SP1).

I want a way to monitor changes to the files and have us notified if there is a change.

How can I do that?

SCCM Inventory could be an option but this way is too slow for your the see there was a change.
I would use a vbscript, but this can have a performance impact on that system

Hmmm. Sounds like there isn't an exact answer.

@merowinger - Why do you think it would be too slow?

@Pankaj_401 - I agree that using monitoring software is ideal but my client doesn't want to buy anything else so I'm looking for a native solution.

Because it's a script which is running the whole time.
