NAME

       autrace - a program similar to strace

SYNOPSIS

       autrace program [-r] [program-args]...

DESCRIPTION

       autrace  is  a program that will add the audit rules to trace a process similar to strace.
       It will then execute the program passing arguments to it. The resulting audit  information
       will  be  in the audit logs if the audit daemon is running or syslog. This command deletes
       all audit rules prior to executing the target program and after executing it. As a  safety
       precaution, it will not run unless all rules are deleted with auditctl prior to use.

OPTIONS

       -r     Limit  syscalls  collected  to ones needed for analyzing resource usage. This could
              help people doing threat modeling. This saves space in logs.

EXAMPLES

       The following illustrates a typical session:

       autrace /bin/ls /tmp
       ausearch --start recent -p 2442 -i

       and for resource usage mode:

       autrace -r /bin/ls
       ausearch --start recent -p 2450 --raw | aureport --file --summary
       ausearch --start recent -p 2450 --raw | aureport --host --summary

SEE ALSO

       ausearch(8), auditctl(8).
