We use audit. (auditd)

It comes with a nice set of utilities for looking at failed system calls and system summaries etc...

(aureport, ausearch, etc...)

When using auditd w/utility this command will bring up a list of all system calls being made

Code:
aureport --start today --syscall
If you want to see failed system calls

Code:
aureport --start today --syscall --failed
If you want to see events

Code:
aureport --start today --event
And a handful of other things --

To list services/modules loaded in kernel just do:
Code:
lsmod

I mean you should read the documentation behind those links and see if you can reach a conclusion yourself or not.

lttng installation

hi, when i was installing the binary package of lttng,in installation process when i wrote"
sudo apt-get install lttng" in command line i found a error which was:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
lttng : Depends: linux-image-2.6.35-24-lttng but it is not going to
be installed
Depends: linux-headers-2.6.35-24-lttng but it is not going to
be installed
Depends: ltt-bin but it is not going to be installed
perl : Depends: perl-base (= 5.12.4-6) but 5.10.1-12ubuntu2 is to be installed
Depends: libdb5.1 but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or
specify a solution).
what should i do?please help me.
