    Hi,

    It seems from the functions your script is able to display, it requires root access to make the calls to the various services (ie netstat, apache, top, etc.), Is this correct? If so, what security countermeasures are in place to prevent possible compromise and therefore escalation of privilages to root user (that is if the script requires access to su account)?

    thx,

    SW

    Your script still doesn't have notifcations within it so how is the above done?

    The script does not require root access, the commands run as nobody so as on most servers unless it is changed manually the settings will allow the user nobody to access the commands to gather the data needed.

    The script has always had notifications via cron for multiservers as well as local services.
