Introduction to process management

The Linux operating system has hundreds if not thousands of processes running simultaneously. These can include the terminal, web servers, executed commands, and any databases that are running in the background or the foreground.

A system administrator or a pentester should be able to efficiently manage these processes. They need to understand that certain permissions have been granted to the different files and directories that form the Linux system.

In this lesson, we’ll learn about these files and directory permissions and the management of the different processes within the Linux system.
