NAME
     sudoreplay -- replay sudo session logs

SYNOPSIS
     sudoreplay [-h] [-d directory] [-f filter] [-m max_wait]
		[-s speed_factor] ID

     sudoreplay [-h] [-d directory] -l [search expression]

DESCRIPTION
     sudoreplay plays back or lists the output logs created by sudo.  When
     replaying, sudoreplay can play the session back in real-time, or the
     playback speed may be adjusted (faster or slower) based on the command
     line options.

     The ID should either be a six character sequence of digits and upper case
     letters, e.g. 0100A5, or a pattern matching the iolog_file option in the
     sudoers file.  When a command is run via sudo with log_output enabled in
     the sudoers file, a TSID=ID string is logged via syslog or to the sudo
     log file.	The ID may also be determined using sudoreplay's list mode.

     In list mode, sudoreplay can be used to find the ID of a session based on
     a number of criteria such as the user, tty or command run.

     In replay mode, if the standard output has not been redirected,
     sudoreplay will act on the following keys:

     ` ' (space)   Pause output; press any key to resume.

     `<'	   Reduce the playback speed by one half.

     `>'	   Double the playback speed.

     The options are as follows:

     -d directory  Use directory to for the session logs instead of the
		   default, /var/log/sudo-io.

     -f filter	   By default, sudoreplay will play back the command's stan-
		   dard output, standard error and tty output.	The -f option
		   can be used to select which of these to output.  The filter
		   argument is a comma-separated list, consisting of one or
		   more of following: stdout, stderr, and ttyout.

     -h		   The -h (help) option causes sudoreplay to print a short
		   help message to the standard output and exit.

     -l [search expression]
		   Enable ``list mode''.  In this mode, sudoreplay will list
		   available sessions in a format similar to the sudo log file
		   format, sorted by file name (or sequence number).  If a
		   search expression is specified, it will be used to restrict
		   the IDs that are displayed.	An expression is composed of
		   the following predicates:

		   command pattern
			   Evaluates to true if the command run matches
			   pattern.  On systems with POSIX regular expression
			   support, the pattern may be an extended regular
			   expression.	On systems without POSIX regular
			   expression support, a simple substring match is
			   performed instead.

		   cwd directory
			   Evaluates to true if the command was run with the
			   specified current working directory.

		   fromdate date
			   Evaluates to true if the command was run on or
			   after date.	See Date and time format for a
			   description of supported date and time formats.

		   group runas_group
			   Evaluates to true if the command was run with the
			   specified runas_group.  Note that unless a
			   runas_group was explicitly specified when sudo was
			   run this field will be empty in the log.

		   runas runas_user
			   Evaluates to true if the command was run as the
			   specified runas_user.  Note that sudo runs commands
			   as user root by default.

		   todate date
			   Evaluates to true if the command was run on or
			   prior to date.  See Date and time format for a
			   description of supported date and time formats.

		   tty tty name
			   Evaluates to true if the command was run on the
			   specified terminal device.  The tty name should be
			   specified without the /dev/ prefix, e.g. tty01
			   instead of /dev/tty01.

		   user user name
			   Evaluates to true if the ID matches a command run
			   by user name.

		   Predicates may be abbreviated to the shortest unique string
		   (currently all predicates may be shortened to a single
		   character).

		   Predicates may be combined using and, or and ! operators as
		   well as `(' and `)' grouping (note that parentheses must
		   generally be escaped from the shell).  The and operator is
		   optional, adjacent predicates have an implied and unless
		   separated by an or.

     -m max_wait   Specify an upper bound on how long to wait between key
		   presses or output data.  By default, sudoreplay will accu-
		   rately reproduce the delays between key presses or program
		   output.  However, this can be tedious when the session
		   includes long pauses.  When the -m option is specified,
		   sudoreplay will limit these pauses to at most max_wait sec-
		   onds.  The value may be specified as a floating point num-
		   ber, e.g. 2.5.

     -s speed_factor
		   This option causes sudoreplay to adjust the number of sec-
		   onds it will wait between key presses or program output.
		   This can be used to slow down or speed up the display.  For
		   example, a speed_factor of 2 would make the output twice as
		   fast whereas a speed_factor of .5 would make the output
		   twice as slow.

     -V		   The -V (version) option causes sudoreplay to print its ver-
		   sion number and exit.

   Date and time format
     The time and date may be specified multiple ways, common formats include:

     HH:MM:SS am MM/DD/CCYY timezone
	     24 hour time may be used in place of am/pm.

     HH:MM:SS am Month, Day Year timezone
	     24 hour time may be used in place of am/pm, and month and day
	     names may be abbreviated.	Note that month and day of the week
	     names must be specified in English.

     CCYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS
	     ISO time format

     DD Month CCYY HH:MM:SS
	     The month name may be abbreviated.

     Either time or date may be omitted, the am/pm and timezone are optional.
     If no date is specified, the current day is assumed; if no time is speci-
     fied, the first second of the specified date is used.  The less signifi-
     cant parts of both time and date may also be omitted, in which case zero
     is assumed.

     The following are all valid time and date specifications:

     now     The current time and date.

	     Exactly one day from now.

     yesterday
	     24 hours ago.
