David,

I should have been more diligent. The input switch was supposed to be
"-if" IIUC. The "-f" switch is looking for a filename inside the record.

[root slim logs-test]# ausearch -i -if `pwd` -m USER
<no matches>

[root slim logs-test]# ausearch -i -if `pwd`/audit.log.1  -m USER
...
----
node=slim type=USER msg=audit(08/17/2009 12:10:52.265:305135) : user
pid=8191 uid=root auid=lcb ses=4172 subj=user_u:user_r:user_t:s0
msg='TEST message: exe=/sbin/auditctl (hostname=?, addr=?,
terminal=pts/18 res=success)' 
...

This is what you want to do right - search inside a directory other
than /var/log/audit with multiple audit logs inside the directory?
