UGH this is a wrench in the works...
I was hoping to grab all the rotated logs, process them while still allowing audit
to run with no interruptions. Problem I run into is I run ausearch -i > /tmp/file and then
do ausearch -i /nfs/file with auditd stopped, then compare files and if they are the same in
size then delete the /tmp/file. I do this to make sure I get the log in the nfs archive directory
and the /tmp is a backup if there is a problem. If audit is running there is no way the files will
be equal in size while processing the /var/log/audit data in two different intervals.
Thanks for feedback on this Lenny.
