       aide - Advanced Intrusion Detection Environment

       aide [parameters] command

       aide  is	 an  intrusion	detection system for checking the integrity of

       --check, -C
	      Checks the database for inconsistencies. You must have  an  ini‐
	      tialized	database to do this. This is also the default command.
	      Without any command aide does a check.

       --init, -i
	      Initialize the database. You must initialize a database and move
	      it  to the appropriate place before you can use the --check com‐

       --update, -u
	      Checks the database and updates the database  non-interactively.
	      The input and output databases must be different.

	      Compares	two databases. They must be defined in configfile with
	      database=<url> and database_new=<url>.

       --config-check, -D
	      Stops after reading in the configuration file. Any  errors  will
	      be  reported.   If aide was compiled with the "--with-dbhmackey"
	      option, a hash for the config file will be calculated.  See  the
	      aide manual for more information.

       --config=configfile , -c configfile
	      Configuration   is   read	  from	 file  configfile  instead  of
	      "./aide.conf". Use '-' for stdin.

       --before="configparameters" , -B "configparameters"
	      These configparameters are handled before	 the  reading  of  the
	      configuration  file.  See aide.conf (5) for more details on what
	      to put here.

       --after="configparameters" , -A "configparameters"
	      These configparameters are handled after the reading of the con‐
	      figuration  file.	 See aide.conf (5) for more details on what to
	      put here.

	      Controls how verbose aide is. Value must [0-255]. The default is
	      5. With no argument Value is set to 20. This parameter overrides
	      the value set in a configuration file.

       --report=reporter,-r reporter
	      reporter is a URL which tells aide where to  send	 it's  output.
	      See aide.conf (5) section URLS for available values.

	      aide prints out its version number

	      Prints out the standard help message.

       Normally,  the  exit status is 0 if no errors occurred. Except when the
       --check command was requested, in which case the exit status is defined

       1 * (new files detected?)     +

       2 * (removed files detected?) +

       4 * (changed files detected?)

       Additionally,  the  following  exit codes are defined for generic error

       14 Error writing error

       15 Invalid argument error

       16 Unimplemented function error

       17 Invalid configureline error

       18 IO error

       19 Version mismatch error

       Please note that due to mmap issues, aide  cannot  be  terminated  with
       SIGTERM. Use SIGKILL to terminate.
