How to install PRM (Process Resource Monitor) Published: Apr 01, 2004

Well I’m excited to keep digging into the depths of email. Since all the support problems today are related to email I think it doesn’t hurt anyone to go the extra mile and learn as much as they can about it and their MTA.

While playing around with Exim I’ve found it has some great possibilities that I’m going to start putting to use privately and some on this site. Such as central filters that can help reduce the amount of spam in your clients mailboxes server wide. Also furthing the ability to track spam going out of your server instead of just being received. No one wants their system blacklisted so we’re going to be putting together some nice email, spam and blacklist related articles for you.

I’ve also been busy making a few custom tools that will be on the site shortly to do specific things or tasks that are very handy.

    Tested this script with a resource hog of a perl script for testing purposes, and it work great. It killed it when I hit the resource limit.

    I've been using this for a while and it really does work. There is now some control over what the users can do on the server. The only problem is when enabled it interfears with my backup forcing me to shut down the resource monitor once per week while the backup runs.

    I use it on two webservers. One of them was overloaded big time by certain users (running corrupt scripts). It does a great job!

    Hi,<br />
    I am looking at this script. Looks very handy for my situation. But as Robert pointed out, the script might caused problem when server backup is run.<br />
    <br />
    I am having about 1400 of accounts in my server, and FUll backup is scheduled on daily basis. WIll this cause problems??<br />
    <br />
    But I thought that "this script was not intended to monitor root processes but rather user land tasks." Is backup process perform under "root" user??<br />
    <br />
    Thanks foryour kind advise.<br />
    James<br />

    Please update this tread, as the script doesn't exist at the given URL any more
