NAME

       augenrules - a script that merges component audit rule files

SYNOPSIS

       augenrules [--check] [--load]

DESCRIPTION

       augenrules  is  a  script  that merges all component audit rules files, found in the audit
       rules directory, /etc/audit/rules.d, placing the merged  file  in  /etc/audit/audit.rules.
       Component  audit  rule files, must end in .rules in order to be processed. All other files
       in /etc/audit/rules.d are ignored.

       The files are concatenated in order, based on their natural sort (see -v option of  ls(1))
       and stripped of empty and comment (#) lines.

       The  last  processed  -D directive without an option, if present, is always emitted as the
       first line in the resultant file. Those with an option are replicated in place.  The  last
       processed  -b directive, if present, is always emitted as the second line in the resultant
       file.  The last processed -f directive, if present, is always emitted as the third line in
       the resultant file.  The last processed -e directive, if present, is always emitted as the
       last line in the resultant file.

       The generated file is only copied to /etc/audit/audit.rules, if it differs.

OPTIONS

       --check
              test if rules have changed and need updating without overwriting audit.rules.

       --load load old or newly built rules into the kernel.

FILES

       /etc/audit/rules.d/ /etc/audit/audit.rules
