I have a NFS4 server with ext4. I'm moving to Debian Stretch. I wonder if I

I like the checksum feature to prevent silent corruption.

Lacking this feature in the filesystems I use for data storage (ext4 and
XFS), my plan was to set up an alert for my backup system, such that I
will be notified if a particular incremental backup is larger than
expected (suggesting more files changed than expected).

At a finer level of detail, I wish to write rules so e.g. "files under
path /foo are not expected to change".

But I haven't produced this yet.
