This isn't really a C/C++ question.

I'd try on a Linux forum. But I'd imagine either you have to setup a kernel signal hook, or poll.
whether this section is not "UNIX/Linux Programming". whether other questions such as "How to write a port scanner" is a really C/C++ Question?
English please.

And yes, that other question is debatable. However, they asked for programming advice on where to start.

I'd look at how to either poll for new devices, or to do a kernel hook.
