Tool for reporting changes in system configuration


diffmon - Tool for reporting changes in system configuration.

This tool is run by a nightly cron job, and takes a `diff' of specified system configuration files and emails them to a specified email address. Options to diff can be specified. This is useful in friendly environments where there are multiple sysadmins working on configuration files/setups and everyone's changes are reported. CVS is a better answer, but most of us don't want to have the hassle of putting system files in a repository. 

Install diffmon in Debian
#apt-get install diffmon
