- checks to make sure kmsgsd and psad are running.
checks on an interval of every five seconds to make sure that
kmsgsd and psad are running on the box. If either of the other two daemons
have died, psadwatchd will restart the daemon and notify each email address
listed in the EMAIL_ADDRESSES variable (see /etc/psad/psad.conf) that the
daemon has been restarted. psadwatchd
uses the psad.conf configuration
file which by default is located at /etc/psad/psad.conf, but a different path
can be specified on the command line.
- -c <config-file>
- Specify path to config file instead of using the default
configuration file /etc/psad/psad.conf.
- Dump the configuration values that psadwatchd
derives from /etc/psad/psad.conf (or other override files) on STDERR.
- Display usage information and exit.
- -O <config-file>
- Override config variable values that are normally read from
the /etc/psad/psad.conf file with values from the specified file. Multiple
override config files can be given as a comma separated list.
