comment What is the OS X / BSD equivalent of the GNU “ps auxf” command?
-1 - seems somewhat incorrect. if it is right, please support your answer with more details on how to install using these package systems rather than just mentioning the package management systems (esp. MacPorts )

Where would this be added on Ubuntu? perhaps /etc/default/snmpd or /etc/init.d/snmpd or elsewhere?

comment How can I access the bios remotely on a desktop computer acting as a server?
Not sure if you saw that I mentioned Out-of-band management in the question? You are correct that I'm looking for a way to control machines remotely that were not intended to be managed remotely. I do not have a specific problem at hand but was curious if it was possible, easy, and/or common to do this. It seems like it could be handy / useful in a lot of scenarios.

blocked video is ok for me - this would not be for desktop machines that are in-use

Thanks, I did see that was available but my when I mention "normal computer" in the question I meant computers that are not specifically purchased for this purpose. Also, not sure if Macs have the Intel vPro available...

comment How to change sshd port on Mac OS X?
It is also worth reading the other answers on this page to find out how to add multiple SSH ports and/or add named service ports (eg: secret-ssh), which combined with this answer seems like the "most elegant" way to add a port, and additionally should keep IPV6 working.

comment How can I configure a Ubuntu LAMP web server with permissions like CPanel?
well, these look interesting but I don't think they do what I'm asking for - I did menton I dont actually need a control panel like CPanel, I just want the behaviors - like how to get apache/php to running as the user on ubuntu (the most common / popular way)? :\

Any way to check this via the command line or would I need to write an application that could check InitSafeBootMode ?

comment How can I manually run a nagios check from the command line?
I will also menton for new users that using tail -f will allow you to continue seeing updates to the file in real time, and control+c will cancel this.
