aureport(8) -- Linux man page

 

NAME

aureport - a tool that produces summary reports of audit daemon logs  

SYNOPSIS

aureport [ options ]  

DESCRIPTION

aureport is a tool that produces summary reports of the audit system logs. The reports have a column label at the top to help with interpretation of the various fields. Except for the main summary report (-r), all reports have the audit event number. You can subsequently lookup the full event with ausearch -a <event number>. You may need to specify start & stop times if you get multiple hits. The reports produced by aureport can be used as building blocks for more complicated analysis.

 

OPTIONS

-a
Report about avc messages
-c
Report about config changes
-e
Report about events
-f
Report about files
--failed
Only select failed events for processing in the reports. The default is both success and failed events.
-h
Report about hosts
-i
Interpret numeric entities into text. For example, uid is converted to account name. The conversion is done using the current resources of the machine where the search is being run. If you have renamed the accounts, or don't have the same accounts on your machine, you could get misleading results.
-if <file name>
Use the given file instead if the logs. This is to aid analysis where the logs have been moved to another machine or only part of a log was saved.
-l
Report about logins
-m
Report about account modifications
-p
Report about processes
-r
This option will output the main summary report.
-s
Report about syscalls
--success
Only select successful events for processing in the reports. The default is both success and failed events.
--summary
Run the summary report that gives a total of the elements of the main report. Not all reports have a summary.
-t
This option will output a report of the start and end times for each log.
-te [end date] [end time]
Search for events with time stamps equal to or before the given end time. The format of end time depends on your locale. If the date is omitted, today is assumed. If the time is omitted, now is assumed. Use 24 hour clock time rather than AM or PM to specify time. An example date is 10/24/05. An example of time is 18:00:00.
-tm
Report about terminals
-ts [start date] [start time]
Search for events with time stamps equal to or after the given end time. The format of end time depends on your locale. If the date is omitted, today is assumed. If the time is omitted, midnight is assumed. Use 24 hour clock time rather than AM or PM to specify time. An example date is 10/24/05. An example of time is 18:00:00.
-u
Report about users
-v
