linux-audit() source options

The file() driver has the following options:



Description: The log file of linux-audit. The AxoSyslog application reads the Linux audit logs from this file.



Description: Insert a prefix before the name part of the parsed name-value pairs to help further processing. For example:

  • To insert the my-parsed-data. prefix, use the prefix(my-parsed-data.) option.

  • To refer to a particular data that has a prefix, use the prefix in the name of the macro, for example, ${}.

  • If you forward the parsed messages using the IETF-syslog protocol, you can insert all the parsed data into the SDATA part of the message using the prefix( option.

Names starting with a dot (for example, .example) are reserved for use by AxoSyslog. Note that if you use an empty prefix (prefix("")) or one starting with a dot, AxoSyslog might replace the original value of an existing macro (note that only soft macros can be overwritten, see Hard versus soft macros for details). To avoid such problems, use a prefix when naming the parsed values, for example, prefix(my-parsed-data.)
