Fsnotifier on linux?

IntelliJ has an application to notify it, when files on the disk have changed.
There was a blog post about it when this application was made available for linux:

My question would be, is this application turned on by default on linux and does it still have the fs.inotify.max_user_watches issue or not?

Yes, it enabled by default.

The app itself doesn't have any issues. The question is if your system configured to have enough watch handles. Default 8K number is ridiculously small.
