RE: server monitoring



Hello --

As far as a general monitoring solution is concerned, I would recommend the Nagios Core
application. I have been using it for some time, and it does have plugins that can handle
most, if not all of the items you listed in your e-mail. I have also deployed another 
server that utilizes the LogAnalyzer application to monitor the log files on the server.

Hi

What tools would you recommend for monitoring the following on a server? :

* kernel + process images in memory
* shape of the process tree
* binary integrity of files + permissions
* network connections
* users, groups
* user sessions
* log files
* ...

I think this calls for a customizable solution with plugins (or so). Is
there any such thing in Debian? How reliable is it?

How about reporting? Logging would be good but logging to a local file
is problematic as that could be compromised on a server hack...
