BOFH Daemon: The Ultimate Tool for Automated Server Stability & Performance
Named for Simon Travaglia's hilarious "Bastard Operator From Hell" stories, the BOFH Daemon keeps an eye on your system and reacts to run-away processes or fork bombs which consume too much of a systems resources. It reacts by changing the priority of those processes with the scheduler. This allows these processes less runtime, giving other programs more time on the processor. It is also possible to configure the BOFH Daemon to terminate programs that hog the systems resources and ignore programs and users vital to your business. All actions are written to stdout and can be redirected to a file for logging.
Lite weight! Simple to use and configure! GPL licensed source code included!!
Bring an end to the frustration and costly down-time caused by run-away or fork bomb processes!
BOFH Daemon with 30 days of email support is only $40, an extremely low investment for an extremely high return!
