       auditd - Starts the DCE Audit Daemon.

       auditd  [-t  trail_file]	 [-a]  [-s  size]  [-wrap]  [-w svc_route] [-d

       Specifies the pathname of the audit trail file used by the  Audit  dae‐
       mon.    The   default   path   of   the	audit  trail  file  is	dcelo‐
       cal/var/aud/adm/central_trail.  If an audit trail file name (instead of
       an  absolute  pathname)	is  specified, the file will be created in the
       dcelocal/var/aud/adm/ directory.	 Audits	 the  Audit  daemon's  control
       interface  access.   Sets  a warning threshold on the size of the audit
       trail file.  The Audit daemon displays a warning message each  time  an
       audit  record  is  appended  to the audit trail after the threshold has
       been reached.  Wraps the recording of audit events to the beginning  of
       the  audit  trail  file	when  its  size limit is reached.  The default
       action when the size limit has been reached is to stop auditing.	 Spec‐
       ifies  where  each  level  of  serviceability messages are routed.  The
       svc_route argument is divided into three fields, separated by colons  -
       the level, a routing identifier, and a routing parameter:


       See svcroute(5) for possible values for these fields.  Specifies debug‐
       ging level of sub-components. The debug_level  argument	contains  four
       fields separated by a colon:


       See svcroute(5) for possible values of these fields.

       The  auditd  command starts the Audit daemon.  The Audit daemon must be
       run on the host before the audit clients.

       The Audit daemon can only service audit clients that are	 on  the  host
       where  it  is running.  Thus, an Audit daemon must be installed and run
       on every host in the cell that has audit clients (audit clients include
       DCE servers and user-written application servers).

       The  Audit  daemon  has	two  functions.	 It maintains the filter files
       which are shared by all audit clients running on	 the  host.   It  also
       provides an audit record logging service to these clients.

       The Audit daemon runs under the local host's machine principal identity

       A DCE Host daemon (dced) must be running on the local host when	auditd
       is  started.   Typically, dced and auditd are started at boot time. The
       auditd process places itself in the background and sends messages indi‐
       cating it is ready to service requests for updating or querying filters
       and logging audit records.

   Privileges Required
       You must be logged into a privileged account (cell_admin or a member of
       the audit-admin group) to be able to run auditd.

       The  following  example starts the Audit daemon using the default audit
       trail file (dcelocal/var/aud/adm/central_trail): $ auditd

       The  following  example	starts	the   Audit   daemon   and   specifies
       my_trail_file as the audit trail file.  $auditd -t my_trail_file

       The  following example starts the Audit daemon and specifies where each
       level of serviceability messages is going to be routed.	 $  auditd  -w
       FATAL:FILE:/dev/console		  -w	       NOTICE:FILE:/opt/dcelo‐

       The following example starts the Audit daemon and  specifies the debug‐
       ging level.  $ auditd -d 1,esl.9

       aud(1m), audevents(1m), audfilter(1m), audtrail(1m), dcecp(1m).
