Audit Setup Configuration File (deprecated)

Note: Audit Manager is deprecated and provided for backward compatibility only. We recommend that you use syslog events instead. See Enterprise Server Auditing for more information.

You can use a configuration file to configure audit setup. Specify the configuration file with the auditmgr -c command when you start auditing. In a Windows environment, you can use the Micro Focus Audit Manager service Start Parameter to specify the configuration file.

An example configuration file is below:
# Sets the output type to secure file.
# Sets that the audit process uses three files only.
# Sets the location where the files are to be created.
mfaudit.emitter.auditfile#file= audit.aud_$(GEN)
# Sets the auditing file names. The $(GEN) parameter 
# sets that the filenames are numbered sequentially.
# Sets that audit files are closed when they reach
# a size of 200 KB
# Sets the duration (in milliseconds) that an event will 
# retry writing to output before it times out.
