NAME
       audit_binfile - generation of Solaris audit logs

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/security/audit_binfile.so

DESCRIPTION
       The  audit_binfile  plugin  module  for Solaris audit, /usr/lib/security/audit_binfile.so,
       writes binary audit data to files as configured in audit_control(4);  it  is  the  default
       plugin for the Solaris audit daemon auditd(1M). Its output is described by audit.log(4).

       The  audit_binfile  plugin is loaded by auditd if audit_control contains one or more lines
       defining audit directories by means of the dir: specification or if  audit_control  has	a
       plugin: specification of name=audit_binfile.so.

OBJECT ATTRIBUTES
       The p_dir and p_minfree attributes are equivalent to the dir: and minfree: lines described
       in audit_control. If both the dir: line and the p_dir attribute are used, the plugin  com-
       bines  all  directories	into  a  single list with those specified by means of dir: at the
       front of the list. If both the minfree and the p_minfree attributes are given, the  p_min-
       free value is used.

       The  p_fsize  attribute	defines  the  maximum size in bytes that an audit file can become
       before it is automatically closed and a new audit file opened. This is  equivalent  to  an
       administrator  issuing an audit -n command when the audit file contains the specified num-
       ber of bytes. The default size is zero(0), which allows the file to grow  without  bound.
       The value specified must be within the range of [512,000, 2,147,483,647].

EXAMPLES
       The  following directives cause audit_binfile.so to be loaded, specify the directories for
       writing audit logs, and specify the percentage of required free space per directory.

	 flags: lo,ad,-fm
	 naflags: lo,ad
	 plugin: name=audit_binfile.so;\
	 p_minfree=20;\
	 p_dir=/etc/security/jedgar/eggplant,\
	 /etc/security/jedgar.aux/eggplant,\
	 /etc/security/global/eggplant
