       From  HP-UX  11i	 Version  3  onwards,  the  tunable is replaced by the
       dynamic tunable audit_track_paths(5).

       If is set to then the HP-UX  Host  Intrusion  Detection	System	(HP-UX
       HIDS) can enable the collection of kernel data for intrusion detection.
       This also causes additional things to be tracked by the kernel, result‐
       ing  in a small degradation in performance (and increase in kernel mem‐
       ory usage), even if HP-UX HIDS is not in use.

   Who Is Expected to Change This Tunable?
       Anyone using HP-UX HIDS.

       Changes to this tunable take effect at the next reboot.

   When Should the Tunable Be Turned On?

   What Are the Side Effects of Turning the Tunable On?
       The name of the current working directory (and root directory) of every
       process is tracked, resulting in a change in memory usage  and  perfor‐
       mance of the system.

   When Should the Tunable Be Turned Off?
       If HP-UX HIDS is not being used should be turned off.

   What Are the Side Effects of Turning the Tunable Off?
       When  turned  off,  HP-UX  HIDS is unable to use any detection template
       that uses (See the documentation for HP-UX HIDS for more information on

   What Other Tunables Should Be Changed at the Same Time?

       Installation of optional kernel software, from HP or other vendors, may
       cause  changes  to  tunable parameter values.  After installation, some
       tunable parameters may no longer be at the default or recommended  val‐
       ues.  For information about the effects of installation on tunable val‐
       ues, consult the documentation for the kernel software being installed.
