Linux How do you audit your Linux environment? How do you track after changes to your files? What kind of processes are running on your system at any given moment? What uses the most resources? Valid questions, all. Special contributor Dedoimedo gives us the straight scoop on "audit.". Editor's note: Call for submissions: are you an OS expert? Can you provide some special insight, some tips and tricks, or just plain illuminate an obscure feature in your OS of choice? We'd like to publish it.

Yep. cfengine/puppet and audit/tripwire complements eachother, they're not mutually exclusive.
configuration management does many things audit doesn't, like keeping a history of changes so that you can always rollback to something that worked. cfg management also tells you exactly what change was done, not just that something was done.
