NAME
       audit_set_pid - Set audit daemon process ID

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libaudit.h>

       int audit_set_pid (int fd, int pid);

DESCRIPTION
       audit_set_pid tells the kernel what the pid is of the audit daemon. When the pid is set to
       0, the kernel will log all events to syslog. Otherwise it will try to send events  to  the
       netlink	connection  that  has the same pid given by this function. If for some reason the
       process goes away, the kernel will automatically set the value to 0 itself.  Usually  this
       function is called by the audit daemon and not an external program.

RETURN VALUE
       The  return  value  is <= 0 on error, otherwise it is the netlink sequence id number. This
       function can have any error that sendto would encounter.

SEE ALSO
       audit_open(3), auditd(8).
