file system filled with auditing files


file system filled with auditing files

Hello ,


I am a new bee in unix and  I enabled auditing on my hp-ux box and now i can see lot of audit files with different time stamp.


Following is the config in  "/etc/rc.config.d/auditing"



AUDEVENT_ARGS1="-P -F -r basic"

AUDOMON_ARGS="-p 20 -t 1 -w 90"


I just came to know since i didn't specify SEC_AUDFILE so the auditing files are getting switched when it reached switch point(100KB)  with same name but with timestamp appended.


Pelase suggest how to define a actioin using -X option .

I want to have only 2 have 2 files . one is old backup file and one current file (single backup file)

i.e if primary file reached switch point then it should go to secondar file and after secondary gets filled the older backup should get delted and sconday file should become backkup


I can change the switch point value to higher value no issues..


A quick help wll be appreciated.....
