    thanke a lot for reply Karim,

    but I think that LTT does not fit to my needs. It needs to modify the
    kernel - and that is what I want to avoid.

    I'm looking for a already existing built-in capability.

    Maybe signal SIGIO is a solution, if it does not

    (x) give me *every* IO event
    (x) has to much overhead - I have to respond to keyboard/mouse events, *not*
    disk events
    grafic card events
    eth event
    etc. ...
