How to validate if a process/daemon is running or not?

Hi,

 

How do I add a control in the Policy Compliance module so that it would check for a running service like FTP or Telnet.  I suppose I could have easily do that using the VM module to check on specific ports, but can I do that in Policy compliance?  I'm using Qualys to check against CIS benchmark, and I have imported the available CIS templates.  Similar test cases in the template are done using the SMF.  However, when I try to add a control, none of the options allow me to perform this type of checks.  Also, what if the Daemon is not managed by SMF?  Any advise or suggestions are appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

HLai
