       audispd.conf - the audit event dispatcher configuration file


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

              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 80.

              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.

              This is  a  non-negative  number  that  tells  the  audit  event
              dispatcher  how  much  of  a priority boost it should take. This
              boost is in addition  to  the  boost  provided  from  the  audit
              daemon. The default is 4. No change is 0.

              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.
