getaudit_addr(auditinfo_addr_t *auditinfo_addr, u_int length);

These system calls require an appropriate privilege to complete.
The getaudit() and getaudit_addr() functions return the value 0 if
successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable
errno is set to indicate the error.
