Im getting a tailwatch error that I think I have traced down to this from my error logs

inotify support not available (Linux::Inotify2 missing or non-functional) 

Have no idea what this is or how to replace it? Any help please

inotify is used to monitor file system events.

According to CPanel's changelog, you should upgrade to at least version

Fixed case 48616: Cpanel::TailWatch: inotify support not available
