PAM_LASTLOG(8)            BSD System Manager's Manual           PAM_LASTLOG(8)

NAME
     pam_lastlog -- login accounting PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_lastlog [options]

DESCRIPTION
     The login accounting service module for PAM, pam_lastlog provides func-
     tionality for only one PAM category: session management.  In terms of the
     module-type parameter, this is the ``session'' feature.

   Login Accounting Session Management Module
     The login accounting session management component provides functions to
     initiate (pam_sm_open_session()) and terminate (pam_sm_close_session())
     sessions.  The pam_sm_open_session() function records the session in the
     utmp(5), wtmp(5) and lastlog(5) databases.  The pam_sm_close_session()
     function does nothing.

     The following options may be passed to the authentication module:

     debug    syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.

     no_warn  suppress warning messages to the user.

     no_fail  Ignore I/O failures.

SEE ALSO
