Description:
LSM is a network socket monitor; it is designed to track changes to Network sockets and Unix domain sockets, effectively a port monitor. It does this by a rather simple differential based comparison of current and new server sockets (Server Ports). A simple and configurable alerting system sends alerts whenever new ports activate. LSM will ignore services that are currently holding sockets open, events are only applicable when a ‘new’ socket (port) is created.
