    Command:

    get_auditfail_action

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <libaudit.h>
    
           int get_auditfail_action (int *failmode);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This   function   gets  the  failure_action  tunable  value  stored  in
           /etc/libaudit.conf. get_auditfail_action should be called after an  au-
           dit_open call returns an error to see what action the admin prefers.
    
           The failure_action value found in /etc/libaudit.conf is copied into the
           failmode argument upon function return.  This value should then be used
           by  the  calling  application  to determine what action should be taken
           when the audit subsystem is unavailable.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           Upon success, get_auditfail_action returns a zero, and the failmode ar-
           gument  will  hold  the  failure_action value.  The possible values for
           failure_action are: FAIL_IGNORE (0), FAIL_LOG (1),  and  FAIL_TERMINATE
           (2). Upon failure, get_auditfail_action returns a return code of one.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           An error is returned if there is an error reading /etc/libaudit.conf or
           if the failure_action tunable is not found in the file.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

                  /* Sample code */
                  auditfail_t failmode;
    
                  if ((fd = audit_open() ) < 0 ) {
                       fprintf (stderr, "Cannot open netlink audit socket");
    
                       /* Get the failure_action */
                       if ((rc = get_auditfail_action(&failmode)) == 0) {
                           if (failmode == FAIL_LOG)
                                fprintf (stderr, "Audit subsystem unavailable");
                           else if (failmode == FAIL_TERMINATE)
                                exit (1);
                           /* If failmode == FAIL_IGNORE, do nothing */
                       }
                  }
