RE: Streaming auditd information to syslog



 I see what you mean but from what past experience the "actions" class
is just a way to force auditd to do something like clean its files up or
alert when something particular occurs then send a message to syslog. I
don't see a way to use the "actions" class to send all audit information
to a syslog server. I think I will give logger a try and see just how
expensive the process turns out to be.

Thanks
