'psmon' is a script which runs as a stand-alone program or a fully functional background daemon, capable of logging to syslog with customizable email notification facilities. The user defines a set of rules in a configuration file. These rules describe what processes should always be running on the system, and any limitations on concurrent instances, TTL, and maximum CPU/memory usage of processes. 'psmon' scans the UNIX process table and, using rules defined in the config file, respawns any dead processes, and slays or "deals with" any aggressive or illegal processes.
