CHAPTER 6
Setting the System to Your Hand
Management of Processes,
Boot Procedure, Kernel,
and Hardware

After reading the first five chapters of this book, your server should be up, running, and secure as well. However, up to now, the server has mostly been left to its own devices, which isn't what you typically want for a server. So, in this chapter, you will learn how to customize and optimize your server.

We'll have a look at some important aspects of your server that can be tuned and modified to increase its efficiency. First, I'll talk about process monitoring and management. Then, I'll talk about cron and how you can use it to automate process execution. After that, you'll learn about the system boot procedure, followed by kernel and hardware management.
