Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am looking for tools to monitor my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS web server. I am interested in being notified when suspicious activities are detected.

For instance, when postifx sends more than a given amount of e-mails in a given period of time (it means that the server has been compromised and turned in an emailing platform), or for any other suspicious activity.

I am mainly looking for suggestions and pointers. Thanks.
