AUDIT_SET_RATE_LIMIT(3)      Linux Audit API     AUDIT_SET_RATE_LIMIT(3)

NAME         top

       audit_set_rate_limit - Set audit rate limit

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <libaudit.h>

       int audit_set_rate_limit(int fd, uint32_t limit);

DESCRIPTION         top

       audit_set_rate_limit will set the maximum number of messages that
       the kernel will send per second. This can be used to throttle the
       rate if systems become unresponsive. Of course the trade off is
       that events will be dropped. The default value is 0, meaning no
       limit.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The return value is <= 0 on error, otherwise it is the netlink
       sequence id number. This function can have any error that sendto
       would encounter.

SEE ALSO         top

       audit_open(3), auditd(8).
