This function will log a message to the audit system using a predefined message format. It should be used for all account manipulation operations. The function parameters are as follows: audit_fd - The fd returned by audit_open type - type of message: AUDIT_USER_CHAUTHTOK for changing any account attributes. pgname - program's name, if NULL will attempt to figure out op - operation. Ex: "adding-user", "changing-finger-info", "deleting-group". This value should have a dash or underscore between the words so that report parsers group them together. name - user's account or group name. If not available use NULL. id - uid or gid that the operation is being performed on. If the user is unknown, pass a -1 and fill in the name parameter. This is used only when user is NULL. host - The hostname if known. If not available pass a NULL. addr - The network address of the user. If not available pass a NULL. tty - The tty of the user, if NULL will attempt to figure out result - 1 is "success" and 0 is "failed"
It returns the sequence number which is > 0 on success or <= 0 on error.
This function returns -1 on failure. Examine errno for more info.
