Description Georg Sauthoff 2019-07-27 09:01:25 UTC
Description of problem:
When running Fedora 29 pcp triggers several read denied AVCs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure that pcp is installed (e.g. as a dependency of dstat)
2. journalctl -n 8000
3. search for AVC denied messages

Actual results:
Several repeats of read denied AVCs like this one:

audit[7229]: AVC avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=72
29 comm="mdadm" path="/var/lib/pcp/pmdas/linux/help.dir" dev="sdc4" ino=203264 s
context=system_u:system_r:mdadm_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:pcp_var_lib_t:s0
 tclass=file permissive=0

When they occur they are repeated 4, 8 or even 20 times or so.

Expected results:
No such AVC errors.
