seq Token

The seq token (sequence token) is an optional token that contains an increasing sequence number. This token is for debugging. The token is added to each audit record when the AUDIT_SEQ policy is active. The seq token has 2 fields: a token ID that identifies this token as a seq token, and a 32-bit unsigned long field that contains the sequence number. The sequence number is incremented every time an audit record is generated and put onto the audit trail. Figure A-21 shows a seq token.
