    Command:

    audispd

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           audispd
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           audispd  is  an  audit  event  multiplexor. It has to be started by the
           audit daemon in order to get events. It takes  audit  events  and  dis-
           tributes  them  to  child programs that want to analyze events in real-
           time. When the audit daemon recieves a SIGTERM  or  SIGHUP,  it  passes
           that signal to the dispatcher, too. The dispatcher in turn passes those
           signals to its child processes.
    
           The child programs install a configuration file in a plugins directory,
           /etc/audisp/plugins.d.  Filenames are not allowed to have more than one
           '.' in the name or it will be treated as a  backup  copy  and  skipped.
           Options  are  given one per line with an equal sign between the keyword
           and its value. The available options are as follows:
    
           active The options for this are yes or no.
    
           direction
                  The option is dictated by the plugin.  In or out  are  the  only
                  choices.  You  cannot  make  a plugin operate in a way it wasn't
                  designed just by changing this option.This option is to  give  a
                  clue  to the event dispatcher about which direction events flow.
                  NOTE: inbound events are not supported yet.
    
           path   This is the absolute path to the plugin executable. In the  case
                  of internal plugins, it would be the name of the plugin.
    
           type   This  tells  the  dispatcher  how  the  plugin  wants to be run.
                  Choices are builtin and always.  Builtin should always be  given
                  for  plugins  that  are  internal to the audit event dispatcher.
                  These are af_unix and syslog. The option always should be  given
                  for most if not all plugins. The default setting is always.
    
           args   This  allows  you to pass arguments to the child program. Gener-
                  ally plugins do not take arguments and  have  their  own  config
                  file  that  instructs them how they should be configured. At the
                  moment, there is a limit of 2 args.
    
           format The valid options for this are binary and string.  Binary passes
                  the  data exactly as the audit event dispatcher gets it from the
                  audit daemon. The string option tells  the  dispatcher  to  com-
                  pletely change the event into a string suitable for parsing with
                  the audit parsing library. The default value is string.
