Audit Policy

Audit policy determines if additional information is added to the audit trail.

The following policies add tokens to audit records: arge, argv, group, path, seq, trail, windata_down, windata_up, and zonename.

The remaining policies do not add tokens. The ahlt and cnt policies determine what happens when kernel audit records cannot be delivered, the public policy limits auditing of public files, and the perzone policy establishes separate audit queues for non-global zones.

The effects of the different audit policy options are described in Determining Audit Policy. For a description of audit policy options, see the -setpolicy option in the auditconfig(1M) man page. For a list of available policy options, run the auditconfig -lspolicy command.
