NAME

       audispd.conf - the audit event dispatcher configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       audispd.conf  is  the  file that controls the configuration of the audit event dispatcher.
       Each line should contain one configuration keyword, an equal sign, and  then  followed  by
       appropriate  configuration  information. All option names and values are case insensitive.
       The keywords recognized are listed and described below. Each line should be limited to 160
       characters  or  the line will be skipped. You may add comments to the file by starting the
       line with a '#' character.

       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 80.

       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.

       priority_boost
              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.

       max_restarts
              This is a non-negative number that tells the audit event dispatcher how many  times
              it can try to restart a crashed plugin. The default is 10.

       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.
