AUDITD(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		     AUDITD(8)

NAME
     auditd -- audit log management daemon

SYNOPSIS
     auditd [-dhs]

DESCRIPTION
     The auditd	daemon responds	to requests from the audit(1) utility and no-
     tifications from the kernel.  It manages the resulting audit log files
     and specified log file locations.

     The options are as	follows:

     -d	     Starts the	daemon in debug	mode - it will not daemonize.

     -h	     Specifies that if auditing	cannot be performed as specified, the
	     system should halt	(panic).  Normally, the	system will attempt to
	     proceed - although	individual processes may be stopped (see the
	     -s	option).

     -s	     Specifies that individual processes should	stop rather than per-
	     form operations that may cause audit records to be	lost due to
	     log file full conditions

NOTE
     To	assure uninterrupted audit support, the	auditd daemon should not be
     started and stopped manually.  Instead, the audit(1) command should be
     used to inform the	daemon to change state/configuration after altering
     the audit_control file.

     Sending a SIGHUP to a running auditd daemon will force it to exit.

FILES
     /var/audit	 Default directory for storing audit log files.

SEE ALSO
     audit(1)
