AUDIT_SET_FAILURE(3) Linux Audit API AUDIT_SET_FAILURE(3)

NAME

audit_set_failure - Set audit failure flag

SYNOPSIS

#include <libaudit.h>
 
int audit_set_failure(int fd, int failure);
 

DESCRIPTION

audit_set_failure sets the action that the kernel will perform when the backlog limit is reached or when it encounters an error and cannot proceed. Possible values are:
 
0 - AUDIT_FAIL_SILENT
Do nothing, report nothing, skip logging the record and continue.
 
1 - AUDIT_FAIL_PRINTK [default]
Log the audit record using printk which will cause subsequent events to get written to syslog.
 
2 - AUDIT_FAIL_PANIC
Call the panic function. This would be used to prevent use of the machine upon loss of audit events.
 

RETURN VALUE

The return value is <= 0 on error, otherwise it is the netlink sequence id number. This function can have any error that sendto would encounter.
