An overview of rlocate and some example usage commands are included as well...
Besides adding a few commodity options, like the -i argument for case-insensitive search, rlocate's main feature is secure path searching, which presents only paths to the user that he has permissions to.

rlocate updates its path database in real-time by using a kernel module that intercepts all paths modifications and a daemon that logs those operations on a differences file. The combination of the full path database with the difference file gives you instant updated information on the filesystem.
