       audispd - an event multiplexor


       audispd	is  an	audit  event  multiplexor. It has to be started by the
       audit daemon in order to get events. It takes audit events and distrib‐
       utes  them  to  child programs that want to analyze events in realtime.
       When the audit daemon receives a SIGTERM or SIGHUP, it passes that sig‐
       nal to the dispatcher, too. The dispatcher in turn passes those signals
       to its child processes.

       The child programs install a configuration file in a plugins directory,
       /etc/audisp/plugins.d.  Filenames are not allowed to have more than one
       '.' in the name or it will be treated as a  backup  copy	 and  skipped.
       Options	are  given one per line with an equal sign between the keyword
       and its value. The available options are as follows:

       active The options for this are yes or no.

	      The option is dictated by the plugin.  In or out	are  the  only
	      choices.	You  cannot  make  a plugin operate in a way it wasn't
	      designed just by changing this option.This option is to  give  a
	      clue  to the event dispatcher about which direction events flow.
	      NOTE: inbound events are not supported yet.

       path   This is the absolute path to the plugin executable. In the  case
	      of internal plugins, it would be the name of the plugin.

       type   This  tells  the	dispatcher  how	 the  plugin  wants to be run.
	      Choices are builtin and always.  Builtin should always be	 given
	      for  plugins  that  are  internal to the audit event dispatcher.
	      These are af_unix and syslog. The option always should be	 given
	      for most if not all plugins. The default setting is always.

       args   This  allows  you to pass arguments to the child program. Gener‐
	      ally plugins do not take arguments and  have  their  own	config
	      file  that  instructs them how they should be configured. At the
	      moment, there is a limit of 2 args.

       format The valid options for this are binary and string.	 Binary passes
	      the  data exactly as the audit event dispatcher gets it from the
	      audit daemon. The string option tells  the  dispatcher  to  com‐
	      pletely change the event into a string suitable for parsing with
	      the audit parsing library. The default value is string.

       /etc/audisp/audispd.conf /etc/audisp/plugins.d

       audispd.conf(5), auditd(8).
