File change monitoring in SCCM2012

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
You can also try out file server monitoring software will help you to track each and every change in you file server and give an instant alerts for the same

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.

@merowinger - I'll check out the possibilities of running the VB script in our environment. Thanks for the tips.
