How to run a custom binary in a control_group


#1

Hi All
As part of our audit recipe, we need to run one of our own binaries and ensure it returns ‘0’. Is there a way we could do that as a part of control_group? I didn’t find any examples or documentation of how it can be done as part of control_group.
Thank you in advance for any help.

Maybe you could create a normal recipe that runs the binary then output the exitcode to a file (/tmp/exitcodefile) and have the audit recipe check the file contents of /tmp/exitcodefile to ensure it returns 0

But yeah not sure how to do it solely within an audit recipe…
