AUTRACE:(8)             System Administration Utilities            AUTRACE:(8)



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).
