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.  The auditctl() system call opens new files, but
     auditon(2) is used to 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.

ERRORS

     The auditctl() system call will fail if:

     [EINVAL]           The path is invalid.

     [EPERM]            The process does not have sufficient permission to complete the
                        operation.

     Inc., under contract to Apple Computer Inc. in 2004.  It was subsequently adopted by the
     TrustedBSD Project as the foundation for the OpenBSM distribution.
