AUDIT_SET_PID(3)                Linux Audit API               AUDIT_SET_PID(3)



NAME
       audit_set_pid - Set audit daemon process ID

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libaudit.h>

       int audit_set_pid (int fd, int pid);


DESCRIPTION
       audit_set_pid tells the kernel what the pid is of the audit daemon.
       When the pid is set to 0, the kernel will log all events to syslog.
       Otherwise it will try to send events to the netlink connection that has
       the same pid given by this function. If for some reason the process
       goes away, the kernel will automatically set the value to 0 itself.
       Usually this function is called by the audit daemon and not an external
       program.


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_open(3), auditd(8).
