    In my VPS's console, I see the following output after the login prompt after boot:
    Code:

    From what I can see, these are audit processes for auditd:

    Linux audit files to see who made changes to a file

    You can see if audit is running:

    Code:
    ps aux | grep audit
    You could always disable it if you aren't wanting to continue monitoring a service. I'm surprised your VPS can run audit as most VPS servers aren't able to add the rpm.

    Is it possible to disable the console output? I am having a similar issue with CSF making the console unusable (output prevents me from logging on) and would love to disable output to the console.

    Running "dmesg -n 1" will prevent the kernel messages from appearing in console.

    and I would just need to add this to /etc/rc.local which would prevent them with each reboot, correct?
