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/secu-
       rity/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: spec-
       ification  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 min-
       free: lines described in audit_control. If both the dir: line  and  the
       p_dir  attribute  are  used, the plugin combines 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_minfree value is used.

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.
