       aa-status - display various information about the current AppArmor policy.


       aa-status [option]


       aa-status will report various aspects of the current state of AppArmor confinement. By
       default, it displays the same information as if the --verbose argument were given. A
       sample of what this looks like is:

         apparmor module is loaded.
         110 profiles are loaded.
         102 profiles are in enforce mode.
         8 profiles are in complain mode.
         Out of 129 processes running:
         13 processes have profiles defined.
         8 processes have profiles in enforce mode.
         5 processes have profiles in complain mode.

       Other argument options are provided to report individual aspects, to support being used in


       aa-status accepts only one argument at a time out of:

           returns error code if AppArmor is not enabled.

           displays the number of loaded AppArmor policies.

           displays the number of loaded enforcing AppArmor policies.

           displays the number of loaded non-enforcing AppArmor policies.

           displays multiple data points about loaded AppArmor policy set (the default action if
           no arguments are given).

           displays multiple data points about loaded AppArmor policy set in a JSON format, fit
           for machine consumption.

           same as --json, formatted to be readable by humans as well as by machines.

           displays a short usage statement.


       Upon exiting, aa-status will set its exit status to the following values:

       0   if apparmor is enabled and policy is loaded.

       1   if apparmor is not enabled/loaded.

       2   if apparmor is enabled but no policy is loaded.

       3   if the apparmor control files aren't available under /sys/kernel/security/.

       4   if the user running the script doesn't have enough privileges to read the apparmor
           control files.


       aa-status must be run as root to read the state of the loaded policy from the apparmor
       module. It uses the /proc filesystem to determine which processes are confined and so is
       susceptible to race conditions.
