NAME
     auditreduce -- select records from	audit trail files

SYNOPSIS
     auditreduce [-A] [-a YYYYMMDD[HH[MM[SS]]]]	[-b YYYYMMDD[HH[MM[SS]]]]
		 [-c flags] [-d	YYYYMMDD] [-e euid] [-f	egid] [-g rgid]
		 [-j id] [-m event] [-o	object=value] [-r ruid]	[-u auid] [-v]
		 [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The auditreduce utility selects records from the audit trail files	based
     on	the specified criteria.	 Matching audit	records	are printed to the
     standard output in	their raw binary form.	If no file argument is speci-
     fied, the standard	input is used by default.  Use the praudit(1) utility
     to	print the selected audit records in human-readable form.

     The options are as	follows:

     -A	     Select all	records.

     -a	YYYYMMDD[HH[MM[SS]]]
	     Select records that occurred after	or on the given	datetime.

     -b	YYYYMMDD[HH[MM[SS]]]
	     Select records that occurred before the given datetime.

     -c	flags
	     Select records matching the given audit classes specified as a
	     comma separated list of audit flags.  See audit_control(5)	for a
	     description of audit flags.

     -d	YYYYMMDD
	     Select records that occurred on a given date.  This option	cannot
	     be	used with -a or	-b.

     -e	euid
	     Select records with the given effective user ID or	name.

     -f	egid
	     Select records with the given effective group ID or name.

     -g	rgid
	     Select records with the given real	group ID or name.

     -j	id   Select records having a subject token with	matching ID, where ID
	     is	a process ID.

     -m	event
	     Select records with the given event name or number. This option
	     can be used more then once	to select records of multiple event
	     types.  See audit_event(5)	for a description of audit event names
	     and numbers.

     -o	object=value

	     file    Select records containing path tokens, where the pathname
		     matches one of the	comma delimited	extended regular
		     expression	contained in given specification.  Regular
		     expressions which are prefixed with a tilde (`~') are
		     excluded from the search results.	These extended regular
		     expressions are processed from left to right, and a path
		     will either be selected or	deslected based	on the first
		     match.

		     Since commas are used to delimit the regular expressions,
		     a backslash (`\') character should	be used	to escape the
		     comma if it is a part of the search pattern.

	     msgqid  Select records containing the given message queue ID.

	     pid     Select records containing the given process ID.

	     semid   Select records containing the given semaphore ID.

	     shmid   Select records containing the given shared	memory ID.

     -r	ruid
	     Select records with the given real	user ID	or name.

     -u	auid
	     Select records with the given audit ID.

     -v	     Invert sense of matching, to select records that do not match.

EXAMPLES
     To	select all records associated with effective user ID root from the
     audit log /var/audit/20031016184719.20031017122634:

	   auditreduce -e root \
	       /var/audit/20031016184719.20031017122634

     To	select all setlogin(2) events from that	log:

	   auditreduce -m AUE_SETLOGIN \
	       /var/audit/20031016184719.20031017122634

     Output from the above command lines will typically	be piped to a new
     trail file, or via	standard output	to the praudit(1) command.

     Select all	records	containing a path token	where the pathname contains
     /etc/master.passwd:

	   auditreduce -o file="/etc/master.passwd" \
	       /var/audit/20031016184719.20031017122634

     Select all	records	containing path	tokens,	where the pathname is a	TTY
     device:

	   auditreduce -o file="/dev/tty[a-zA-Z][0-9]+"	\
	       /var/audit/20031016184719.20031017122634

     Select all	records	containing path	tokens,	where the pathname is a	TTY
     except for	/dev/ttyp2:

	   auditreduce -o file="~/dev/ttyp2,/dev/tty[a-zA-Z][0-9]+" \
	       /var/audit/20031016184719.20031017122634

     It	was subsequently adopted by the	TrustedBSD Project as the foundation
     for the OpenBSM distribution.
