I want to create a program that logs all the processes started by the user and confirms after they are started. I don't want to log all the syscalls and other daemon processes. I have initially checked out
auditd package and also
acct but they are very slow and they provide much more information than I need. I want something like
ps (that reports a snapshot of the current processes).
Currently I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an AMD X2 and on an Intel dual core. Thanks!
