    Command:

    auditd

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           auditd [-f] [-l] [-n] [-s disable|enable|nochange]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           auditd  is  the  userspace component to the Linux Auditing System. It's
           responsible for writing audit records to the disk. Viewing the logs  is
           done  with  the  ausearch  or aureport utilities. Configuring the audit
           rules is done with the auditctl utility. During startup, the  rules  in
           /etc/audit/audit.rules  are  read  by auditctl. The audit daemon itself
           has some configuration options that the admin may  wish  to  customize.
           They are found in the auditd.conf file.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -f     leave the audit daemon in the foreground for debugging. Messages
                  also go to stderr rather than the audit log.
    
           -l     allow the audit daemon to follow symlinks for config files.
    
           -n     no fork. This is useful for running off of inittab
    
           -s=ENABLE_STATE
                  specify when starting if auditd should change the current  value
                  for  the  kernel enabled flag. Valid values for ENABLE_STATE are
                  "disable", "enable" or "nochange". The default is to enable (and
                  disable  when  auditd terminates). The value of the enabled flag
                  may be changed during the lifetime  of  auditd  using  'auditctl
                  -e'.
    
    
    

    SIGNALS

           SIGHUP causes  auditd  to  reconfigure. This means that auditd re-reads
                  the configuration file. If there are no syntax errors,  it  will
                  proceed  to  implement the requested changes. If the reconfigure
                  is successful, a DAEMON_CONFIG event is recorded in the logs. If
                  not    successful,    error    handling    is    controlled   by
                  space_left_action,  admin_space_left_action,   disk_full_action,
                  and disk_error_action parameters in auditd.conf.
    
           SIGTERM
                  caused  auditd  to  discontinue processing audit events, write a
                  shutdown audit event, and exit.
    
           SIGUSR1
                  causes auditd to immediately rotate the logs.  It  will  consult
                  the  max_log_size_action  to  see  if it should keep the logs or
                  not.
    
           SIGUSR2
                  causes auditd to attemp to resume logging. This is usually  used
                  after logging has been suspended.
    
           The audit daemon can receive audit events from other audit daemons  via
           the  audisp-remote  audispd plugin. The audit daemon may be linked with
           tcp_wrappers to control which machines can  connect.  If  this  is  the
           case, you can add an entry to hosts.allow and deny.
