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).
