AUDIT_SET_RATE_LIMIT(3)         Linux Audit API        AUDIT_SET_RATE_LIMIT(3)



NAME
       audit_set_rate_limit - Set audit rate limit

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libaudit.h>

       int audit_set_rate_limit (int fd, int limit);


DESCRIPTION
       audit_set_rate_limit will set the maximum number of messages that the
       kernel will send per second. This can be used to throttle the rate if
       systems become unresponsive. Of course the trade off is that events
       will be dropped. The default value is 0, meaning no limit.


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)
