:SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk- from 'getattr' accesses on the directory /tmp/hsperfdata_root.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that java should be allowed getattr 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 2012-06-25 02:45:43 EDT
What apps do you use?

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-25 16:48:42 EDT
This looks like the init script creates /tmp/hsperfdata_root at boot and then apache uses the directory?  Seems like this might be a bad idea.  Would probably be better if this was done in /run/httpd/
