       apparmor_status - display various information about the current
       AppArmor policy.


       apparmor_status [option]


       apparmor_status will report various aspects of the current state of
       AppArmor confinement. By default, it displays the same information as
       if the --verbose argument were given. A sample of what this looks like

         apparmor module is loaded.
         110 profiles are loaded.
         102 profiles are in enforce mode.
         8 profiles are in complain mode.
         Out of 129 processes running:
         13 processes have profiles defined.
         8 processes have profiles in enforce mode.
         5 processes have profiles in complain mode.

       Other argument options are provided to report individual aspects, to
       support being used in scripts.


       apparmor_status accepts only one argument at a time out of:

           returns error code if AppArmor is not enabled.

           displays the number of loaded AppArmor policies.

           displays the number of loaded enforcing AppArmor policies.

           displays the number of loaded non-enforcing AppArmor policies.

           displays multiple data points about loaded AppArmor policy set (the
           default action if no arguments are given).

           displays a short usage statement.


       apparmor_status must be run as root to read the state of the loaded
       policy from the apparmor module. It uses the /proc filesystem to
       determine which processes are confined and so is susceptible to race

       Upon exiting, apparmor_status will set its return value to the
       following values:

       0   if apparmor is enabled and policy is loaded.

       1   if apparmor is not enabled/loaded.

       2   if apparmor is enabled but no policy is loaded.

       3   if the apparmor control files aren't available under

       4   if the user running the script doesn't have enough privileges to
           read the apparmor control files.

       Hey! The above document had some coding errors, which are explained

       Around line 95:
           '=item' outside of any '=over'

       Around line 119:
           You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'
