NAME         top

       augenrules - a script that merges component audit rule files

SYNOPSIS         top

       augenrules [--check] [--load]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

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

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