                 __u32   enabled;        /* 1 = enabled, 0 = disabled */
                 __u32   failure;        /* Failure-to-log action */
                 __u32   pid;            /* pid of auditd process */
                 __u32   rate_limit;     /* messages rate limit (per second) */
                 __u32   backlog_limit;  /* waiting messages limit */
                 __u32   lost;           /* messages lost */
                 __u32   backlog;        /* messages waiting in queue */
              };
