:SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk- from 'read' accesses on the directory hsperfdata_root.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that java should be allowed read access on the hsperfdata_root directory 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 java /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-06-18 11:05:56 EDT
Is there a deamon running as initrc_t?

# ps -eZ |grep initrc

Or do you know how hsperfdata_root is created?
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-18 16:26:15 EDT
This looks like the hsperfdata_root directory was created with the wrong label on it, by an init script?
