Alert notice for Audit log

Dear users,

I have SLES 11 and SLES 10 servers.

I'd like to receive an alert when audit log files reach certain percentage of full.

1. Is '/etc/audit/auditd.conf' the right file to modify?

2. I'd like to receive email alert. Can I specify my email in this parameter 'action_mail_acct ='?

3. I'd like to get notified when the log file reaches 90%. What parameter value should I change? And where is it?

Thank you,
