NAME
     auditdistd	-- Audit trail files distribution daemon

SYNOPSIS
     auditdistd	[-dFhl]	[-c config] [-P	pidfile]

DESCRIPTION
     The auditdistd daemon is responsible for distributing audit trail files
     over TCP/IP network in a secure and reliable way.

     The auditdistd daemon can be started with the following command line
     arguments:

     -c	config	 Specify alternative location of the configuration file.  The
		 default location is /etc/security/auditdistd.conf.  Note: the
		 configuration file may	contain	passwords.  Care should	be
		 taken to configure proper permissions on this file (eg.
		 0600).

     -d		 Print or log debugging	information.  This option can be spec-
		 ified multiple	times to raise the verbosity level.

     -F		 Start the auditdistd daemon in	the foreground.	 By default
		 auditdistd starts in the background.

     -h		 Print the auditdistd usage message.

     -l		 Start in a launchd-friendly mode, ie. do not use daemon(3).

     -P	pidfile	 Specify alternative location of a file	where main process PID
		 will be stored.  The default location is
		 /var/run/auditdistd.pid.
