AUDITCTL(2) System Calls Manual AUDITCTL(2)

auditctlconfigure system audit parameters

#include <bsm/audit.h>

int
auditctl(const char *path);

The () system call directs the kernel to open a new audit trail log file. It requires an appropriate privilege. The auditctl() system call opens new files, but auditon(2) is used to disable the audit log.

Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

The auditctl() system call will fail if:

[]
The path is invalid.
[]
The process does not have sufficient permission to complete the operation.
