To clarify the resource usage a bit, consider what using fam involves:
 - keeping all files you're monitoring for changes in memory
 - when they change, running a diff algorithm to generate 
   the change notifications

So it's memory to keep the files around and CPU to run all the diffs.

Plus it's a pain in the butt to implement.
