NAME

     auditctl - configure system audit parameters

SYNOPSIS

     #include <bsm/audit.h>

     int
     auditctl(const char *path);

DESCRIPTION

     The auditctl() system call directs the kernel to open a new audit trail
     log file.  It requires an appropriate privilege.  In the FreeBSD
     implementation, auditctl() opens new files, but auditon(2) is used to
     disable the audit log.  In the Mac OS X implementation, passing NULL to
     auditctl() will disable the audit log.

RETURN VALUES

     Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
     error.

HISTORY

     The OpenBSM implementation was created by McAfee Research, the security
     division of McAfee Inc., under contract to Apple Computer Inc. in 2004.
     It was subsequently adopted by the TrustedBSD Project as the foundation
     for the OpenBSM distribution.
