Synopsis

#include <libaudit.h>

int audit_set_backlog_wait_time (int fd, int wait_time);

Description

audit_set_backlog_wait_time sets the time that the kernel will wait before attempting to send more audit events to be transferred to the audit daemon when the backlog_limit is reached. This gives the audit daemon a chance to drain the kernel queue. The default value is 60000 or 60 * HZ setting in the kernel.

Return Value

The return value is <= 0 on error, otherwise it is the netlink sequence id number. This function can have any error that sendto would encounter.
