NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     satread - read a block of audit record data

C SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sys/sat.h>

     int satread (char *buffer,	unsigned nbytes)

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     satread attempts to read nbytes bytes from	the security audit trail
     record queue into the buffer pointed to by	buffer.

     satread destroys the data that has	been read.  A subsequent satread call
     will read new and different data.

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

     satread will fail if one or more of the following are true:

     [ENOPKG]	    Audit is not configured on this system.

     [EPERM]	    The	caller doesn't have CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL capability.

     [EFAULT]	    data cannot	be copied from the kernel into buffer.

     [EACCES]	    the	caller's process label does not	dominate dbadmin,
		    which is to	say, it	must dominate MsenAdmin,MintHigh.

     [EACCES]	    there is a sat daemon running on the system, and the
		    caller is not that daemon.

RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]

     A return value of -1 indicates an error and errno is set to indicate the
     error.  Otherwise the number of bytes copied into buffer is returned.
