How can we analyze the performance impact of the audit daemon?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • How can we see the system call overhead?

  • Is there a way to measure the impact of the Red Hat supported audit daemon rules?

  • Can we measure system calls per minute or per second in some way?

  • For example, if audit daemon is monitoring the "fopen" system call, would we be able to determine that the system call takes 10%, 15%, longer to execute then it would without the audit rule?
