Re: [PATCH] auvirt: a new tool for reporting events related to virtual machines

I agree that pid and time is a better way for correlation but I was coding a solution based on that when I figured out a problem. There's no qemu pid in the audit logs. Libvirt (at least the libvirt shipped with RHEL 6.2) always logs its own pid to the audit log.

I'll try to discover if there is another way to correlate them or if newer versions of libvirt log the qemu pid to the audit log.

Do you think there is another ways to correlate them?
I was thinking to correlate them based on the time and pid. If its within the
time range between startup/shutdown and its the same pid, then you have the
event correlated. If its outside the time range or a different pid, then you do
not have correlation. I would not look at selinux label because not all
systems/distros have it enabled or compiled in. So, pid and time are the most
universal identifiers for correlation.
