PRAUDIT(1)              FreeBSD General Commands Manual             PRAUDIT(1)

     praudit - print the contents of audit trail files

     praudit [-lnpx] [-r | -s] [-d del] [file ...]

     The praudit utility prints the contents of the audit trail files to the
     standard output in human-readable form.  If no file argument is
     specified, the standard input is used by default.

     The options are as follows:

     -d del  Specifies the delimiter.  The default delimiter is the comma.

     -l      Prints the entire record on the same line.  If this option is not
             specified, every token is displayed on a different line.

     -n      Do not convert user and group IDs to their names but leave in
             their numeric forms.

     -p      Specify this option if input to praudit is piped from the tail(1)
             utility.  This causes praudit to sync to the start of the next

     -r      Prints the records in their raw, numeric form.  This option is
             exclusive from -s.

     -s      Prints the tokens in their short form.  Short text
             representations for record and event type are displayed.  This
             option is exclusive from -r.

     -x      Print audit records in the XML output format.

     If the raw or short forms are not specified, the default is to print the
     tokens in their long form.  Events are displayed as per their
     descriptions given in /etc/security/audit_event; UIDs and GIDs are
     expanded to their names; dates and times are displayed in human-readable

     /etc/security/audit_class        Descriptions of audit event classes.
     /etc/security/audit_event        Descriptions of audit events.

     auditreduce(1), audit(4), auditpipe(4), audit_class(5), audit_event(5)
