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
