       audispd.conf - the audit event dispatcher configuration file

       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.

              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.

              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.

              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.

              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.

              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.

              This is the location that audispd will use to search for its
              plugin configuration files.
