A test if executable is exec'd? (assume no internal logging)
Trying to determine impact of installing a specific application using LDAP authenticated account. (Security is mandating it).
One of the "progs" as part of an app suite includes a "check password" binary that is installed as root and authenticates against the OS to return a T/F to the calling app.
Need to know how many times a second this is called and get a measure of how fast it can turn around a request. Assume not wanting to write a wrapper and no internal logging is available.
Is it possible to 'monitor' requests to an application (in this case the check password prog mentioned) and determine frequency and turnaround of a request?
