AUDIT(8) BSD System Manager's Manual AUDIT(8)
audit -- audit management utility
audit -e | -i | -n | -s | -t
The audit utility controls the state of the audit system. One of the following flags is required as an argument to audit:
-e Forces the audit system to immediately remove audit log files that meet the expiration criteria specified in the audit control file
without doing a log rotation.
-i Initializes and starts auditing. This option is currently for Mac OS X only and requires auditd(8) to be configured to run under
-n Forces the audit system to close the existing audit log file and rotate to a new log file in a location specified in the audit con-
trol file. Also, audit log files that meet the expiration criteria specified in the audit control file will be removed.
-s Specifies that the audit system should [re]synchronize its configuration from the audit control file. A new log file will be cre-
-t Specifies that the audit system should terminate. Log files are closed and renamed to indicate the time of the shutdown.
The auditd(8) daemon must already be running. Optionally, it can be configured to be started on-demand by launchd(8) (Mac OS X only). The
audit utility requires audit administrator privileges for successful operation.
/etc/security/audit_control Audit policy file used to configure the auditing system.
