NAME

       audispd - the audit event dispatcher configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       audispd.conf  is  the file that controls the configuration of the audit
       event dispatcher. The options that are available are as follows:

       q_depth
              This is a numeric value that tells how big to make the  internal
              queue  of  the  audit  event  dispatcher. A bigger queue lets it
              handle a flood of events better, but could hold events that  are
              not processed when the daemon is terminated. If you get messages
              in syslog about events getting dropped, increase this value. The
              default value is 64.

       overflow_action
              This   option   determines   how  the  daemon  should  react  to
              overflowing its internal queue. When this happens, it means that
              more  events  are  being  received  than it can get rid of. This
              error means that it is going  to  lose  the  current  event  its
              trying  to  dispatch.  It  has  the  following  choices: ignore,
              syslog, suspend, single, and halt.  If set to ignore, the audisp
              daemon  does nothing.  syslog means that it will issue a warning
              to syslog.   suspend  will  cause  the  audisp  daemon  to  stop
              processing  events.  The  daemon will still be alive. The single
              option will cause the audisp daemon to put the  computer  system
              in  single  user mode.  halt option will cause the audisp daemon
              to shutdown the computer system.

       name_format
              This option controls how computer node names are  inserted  into
              the  audit  event  stream.  It  has the following choices: none,
              hostname, fqd, numeric, and user.  None means that  no  computer
              name  is  inserted  into  the audit event.  hostname is the name
              returned by the gethostname syscall. The fqd means that it takes
              the  hostname  and  resolves  it  with dns for a fully qualified
              domain name of that machine.  Numeric is similar to  fqd  except
              it  resolves  the  IP  address of the machine.  User is an admin
              defined string from the name option. The default value is  none.

       name   This  is the admin defined string that identifies the machine if
              user is given as the name_format option.
