  1. Question says:

    I am looking for a tool that lists/logs all “read / write / sent / received” activities of any process in detail additionally.
    Is that possible with this tool?

    It would also be nice to restrict a critical process instead of deleting it like security tools like to do. I am also looking for a tool that monitors installation activities and maybe backups modified system values or at least let me know. Could anyone give me an advisement?

    • Question says:

      I need also be sure about any access for example keyboard and mouse or other peripherals. Those psycho attacks are state of the art and there is no easy way to get sure about it so far or I just haven t found the right tool yet.
      I will have a look if anyone has a suggestion for me later on. Thanks for reading :)

    If “yum install monit” doesn’t work, try with “yum –enablerepo=epel install monit”

    Nice tutorial, just a small typo here: ” following command to stat the monit service”
