NAME
auditstat - display kernel audit statistics SYNOPSIS
auditstat [-c count] [-h numlines] [-i interval] [-n] [-v] DESCRIPTION
auditstat displays kernel audit statistics. The fields displayed are as follows: aud The total number of audit records processed by the audit(2) system call. ctl This field is obsolete. drop The total number of audit records that have been dropped. Records are dropped according to the kernel audit policy. See audi- ton(2), AUDIT_CNT policy for details. enq The total number of audit records put on the kernel audit queue. gen The total number of audit records that have been constructed (not the number written). kern The total number of audit records produced by user processes (as a result of system calls). mem The total number of Kbytes of memory currently in use by the kernel audit module. nona The total number of non-attributable audit records that have been constructed. These are audit records that are not attributable to any particular user. rblk The total number of times that auditsvc(2) has blocked waiting to process audit data. tot The total number of Kbytes of audit data written to the audit trail. wblk The total number of times that user processes blocked on the audit queue at the high water mark. wrtn The total number of audit records written. The difference between enq and wrtn is the number of outstanding audit records on the audit queue that have not been written. OPTIONS
-c count Display the statistics a total of count times. If count is equal to zero, statistics are displayed indefinitely. A time interval must be specified. -h numlines Display a header for every numlines of statistics printed. The default is to display the header every 20 lines. If num- lines is equal to zero, the header is never displayed. -i interval Display the statistics every interval where interval is the number of seconds to sleep between each collection. -n Display the number of kernel audit events currently configured. -v Display the version number of the kernel audit module software. EXIT STATUS
auditstat returns 0 upon success and 1 upon failure. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
audit - control the behavior of the audit daemon SYNOPSIS
audit -n | -s | -t | -v [path] The audit command is the system administrator's interface to maintaining the audit trail. The audit daemon can be notified to read the con- tents of the audit_control(4) file and re-initialize the current audit directory to the first directory listed in the audit_control file or to open a new audit file in the current audit directory specified in the audit_control file, as last read by the audit daemon. Reading audit_control also causes the minfree and plugin configuration lines to be re-read and reset within auditd. The audit daemon can also be signaled to close the audit trail and disable auditing. -n Notify the audit daemon to close the current audit file and open a new audit file in the current audit directory. -s Notify the audit daemon to read the audit control file. The audit daemon stores the information internally. If the audit daemon is not running but audit has been enabled by means of bsmconv(1M), the audit daemon is started. -t Direct the audit daemon to close the current audit trail file, disable auditing, and die. Use -s to restart auditing. -v path Verify the syntax for the audit control file stored in path. The audit command displays an approval message or outputs specific error messages for each error found. The audit command will exit with 0 upon success and a positive integer upon failure. /etc/security/audit_user /etc/security/audit_control See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWcsu | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Stability |Evolving | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ bsmconv(1M), praudit(1M), audit(2), audit_control(4), audit_user(4), attributes(5) The functionality described in this man page is available only if the Basic Security Module (BSM) has been enabled. See bsmconv(1M) for more information. The audit command does not modify a process's preselection mask. It functions are limited to the following: o affects which audit directories are used for audit data storage; o specifies the minimum free space setting; o resets the parameters supplied by means of the plugin directive. For the -s option, audit validates the audit_control syntax and displays an error message if a syntax error is found. If a syntax error message is displayed, the audit daemon does not re-read audit_control. Because audit_control is processed at boot time, the -v option is provided to allow syntax checking of an edited copy of audit_control. Using -v, audit exits with 0 if the syntax is correct; otherwise, it returns a positive integer. The -v option can be used in any zone, but the -t, -s, and -n options are valid only in local zones and, then, only if the perzone audit policy is set. See auditd(1M) and auditconfig(1M) for per-zone audit configuration. 25 May 2004 audit(1M)
