On my Oneplus Two android phone I recently updated to android 6.0. Since then my battery life has decreased drastically. Plugged into my computer I saw that a app is spamming the logcat even when the screen is tured off and the device should sleep.

04-23 22:49:48.278 666-666/? W/ipacm: type=1400 audit(0.0:19622): avc: denied { sendto } for path="/dev/socket/ipacm_log_file" scontext=u:r:ipacm:s0 tcontext=u:r:ipacm-diag:s0 tclass=unix_dgram_socket permissive=0

This message is spamed four times every ~5 seconds. Now my question is: How can I figure out which app is responsible for that message?


I have done a factory reset and the waring still appears. So I guess it's a system app / service. Note: The waring only appears while being connected to a wifi network. It could also be the case that the warning only appears while charging.

    I don't think it's from a specific app, but W/ipacm seems indicates a Warning log from ipacm process. However, I don't know what IPACM is. (IP ACM?) – Andrew T. Apr 23 '16 at 21:21
  • @AndrewT. sounds like a good guess: Multipath TCP - ACM Queue (really just a wild guess, didn't research it in-depth – but the page title sounds convincing somehow ;) – Izzy Apr 23 '16 at 22:25

There is a free app MyAndroidTools which shows the logcat with the applications names responsible for the loggings.
