SYNOPSISpraudit [-lpx] [-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 speci‐
fied, 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.
-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 representa‐
tions for record and event type are displayed. This option is

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 descrip‐
tions given in /etc/security/audit_event; UIDs and GIDs are expanded to
their names; dates and times are displayed in human-readable format.
