NAME
     loginlog - log of failed login attempts

DESCRIPTION
     After five unsuccessful login attempts, all the attempts are
     logged in the file /var/adm/loginlog. This file contains one
     record for each failed attempt.  Each  record  contains  the
     login name, tty specification, and time.

     This is an ASCII file.  Each  field  within  each  entry  is
     separated  from the next by a colon. Each entry is separated
     from the next by a new-line.

     By default, loginlog does not exist, so no logging is  done.
     To  enable  logging,  the log file must be created with read
     and write permission for owner only. Owner must be root  and
     group must be sys.

FILES
