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


Well I just got back from my brothers wedding in Maui. We had a blast, what a beautiful place to get hitched! Now that I’m tanned and relaxed I’ll mention some upcoming things on WHG ;)

If you haven’t already I suggest checking out our antivirus.exim
tutorial at Many people overlook
this little gem but it’s definately something you should consider
getting use to tinkering with.

I’m interested in knowing what kind of other things you’d like to see on
the site. More tutorials, interviews, reviews? Are you guys/gals after
something in particular then drop me a line

I’ve also been working on my own custom rulesets for antivirus.exim and
mod_security which are real nice and blocking a lot of new attacks out

Hope everyone had a great week, I’ll keep you posted!

    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 />

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