NAME
       faillog - login failure logging file

DESCRIPTION
       /var/log/faillog maintains a count of login failures and the limits for
       each account.

       The file contains fixed length records, indexed by numerical UID. Each
       record contains the count of login failures since the last successful
       login; the maximum number of failures before the account is disabled;
       the line on which the last login failure occurred; the date of the last
       login failure; and the duration (in seconds) during which the account
       will be locked after a failure.

       The structure of the file is:

	   struct    faillog {
		short	fail_cnt;
		short	fail_max;
		char	fail_line[12];
		time_t	fail_time;
		long	fail_locktime;
	   };

FILES
       /var/log/faillog
	   Failure logging file.
