AUDITCTL(2)               FreeBSD System Calls Manual              AUDITCTL(2)

NAME
     auditctl -- Configure system audit parameters

SYNOPSIS
     #include <bsm/audit.h>

     int
     auditctl(const char *path);

DESCRIPTION
     The auditctl() system call directs the kernel to open a new audit trail
     log file.  auditctl() requires appropriate privilege.  In the FreeBSD
     implementation, auditctl() opens new files, but auditon() is used to dis-
     able the audit log.  In the Mac OS X implementation, passing NULL to
     auditctl() will disable the audit log.

RETURN VALUES
     auditctl returns 0 on success, or returns -1 on failure, providing addi-
     tional error information via errno.

SEE ALSO
     libbsm(3), auditd(8)
