AUDIT_SET_BACKLOG_LIMIT(3) Library Functions Manual AUDIT_SET_BACKLOG_LIMIT(3)



NAME
       audit_set_backlog_limit - Set the audit backlog limit

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libaudit.h>

       int audit_set_backlog_limit (int fd, int limit);


DESCRIPTION
       audit_set_backlog_limit sets the queue length for audit events awaiting
       transfer to the audit daemon. The default value is 64 which can
       potentially be overrun by bursts of activity. When the backlog limit is
       reached, the kernel consults the failure_flag to see what action to
       take.


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.


SEE ALSO
       audit_set_failure(3), audit_open(3), auditd(8), auditctl(8).
