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.

The problem with Linux auditd, if there can be said to be one, is that it is different and (IMO) needlessly different from the Solaris/FreeBSD auditd. Could have been the same but isn't. Much like pam differences, but with less need, this just makes switching between systems a little more annoying and frustrating.
