auditstat [-c count] [-h numlines] [-i interval] [-n] [-v]
auditstat displays kernel audit statistics. The fields displayed are as follows:
aud The total number of audit records processed by the audit(2) system call.
ctl This field is obsolete.
drop The total number of audit records that have been dropped. Records are dropped according to the kernel audit policy. See auditon(2), AUDIT_CNT policy for details.
enq The total number of audit records put on the kernel audit queue.
gen The total number of audit records that have been constructed (not the number written).
kern The total number of audit records produced by user processes (as a result of system calls).
mem The total number of Kbytes of memory currently in use by the kernel audit module.
nona The total number of non-attributable audit records that have been constructed. These are audit records that are not attributable to any particular user.
rblk The total number of times that auditsvc(2) has blocked waiting to process audit data.
tot The total number of Kbytes of audit data written to the audit trail.
wblk The total number of times that user processes blocked on the audit queue at the high water mark.
wrtn The total number of audit records written. The difference between enq and wrtn is the number of outstanding audit records on the audit queue that have not been written.
-c count Display the statistics a total of count times. If count is equal to zero, statistics are displayed indefinitely. A time interval must be specified.
-h numlines Display a header for every numlines of statistics printed. The default is to display the header every 20 lines. If numlines is equal to zero, the header is never displayed.
-i interval Display the statistics every interval where interval is the number of seconds to sleep between each collection.
-n Display the number of kernel audit events currently configured.
-v Display the version number of the kernel audit module software.
auditstat returns 0 upon success and 1 upon failure.
