:SELinux is preventing sysctl from 'getattr' accesses on the file /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that sysctl should be allowed getattr access on the nmi_watchdog file by default.
:Then you should report this as a bug.
:You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
:allow this access for now by executing:
:# grep sysctl /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Karel Volný 2012-04-04 10:02:21 EDT
CCing tuned maintainer, and jscotka & jskarvad as this is from PM testday

note, this may be connected to bug #809836
Comment 2 Michal Ambroz 2012-04-04 19:52:28 EDT
Should be probably solved together with other events triggered by 
"tuned-adm profile something".

Marking as duplicate of 809832.
