@HopelessN00b Why the put-down on KVM? We use it, and we haven't had a singe problem thus far.

comment Debian server is killing my network
Is this running behind a firewall or NAT of some sort? That may help to narrow things down.

comment Getting auditd to record the original user
@fuero This question was posted before you had posted your answer, and the original question had become stale and the existing answers didn't answer the whole question. I am still waiting to get my hands on a CentOS sandbox at work, and will accept your answer when I've had a chance to test it. Thank you for your answer though.

@cstamas That was indeed useful. However, on my Ubuntu 12.04 workstation, it did not seem to work.

@AaronCopley Not a problem, it was still very useful in it's own right. Thank you.

comment Getting auditd to record the original user
@AaronCopley I skimmed through it, but I didn't see anything allowing me to include a custom variable (such as SUDO_USER) in the log...

comment Log all commands run by admins on production servers
Ok, I've started playing with auditd, and while I’ve gotten it to log all commands being run, it doesn't include the SUDO_USER variable (or equivalent information), and I can't find a way to include it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

comment Log all commands run by admins on production servers
I understand that nothing will be perfect, but we will never be able to get everyone to work like you describe. These are sysadmins we're talking about ;)

comment Log all commands run by admins on production servers
Could somebody please post this as an answer? Please include how I would strictly log all commands run by users. The "brief intro to auditd" was useful, but it didn't include anything related to logging actual commands (as far as I could tell anyway).
