Hello everybody,

we have some issues with the our external storage plugin. File changes
which are made outside from OC were not detected. While debugging I
found the watcher and scanner classes.

The difference between the two is explained in the cache.php. But I
could not find further documentation. May somebody can help me
understanding the process.

Who triggers the watcher? Because the external storage uses OC
credentials a cronjob will not work in our scenario. Is it sufficient to
connect the sync client or is it necessary to access the Webinterface to
trigger the watcher?

Best regards,
Michael
