Description Steve Grubb 2005-06-16 08:58:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The kernel still emits records about the audit daemon. This can cause a geometric explosion in records since each logging of a record generates 7-10 events - each having several records. This rule can be used to trigger it:

auditctl -a entry,always -S all -F auid=-1

This is what results:

type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1118858393.806:1338447): arch=40000003 syscall=240 
success=yes exit=1 a0=b8ce64 a1=1 a2=1 a3=a79a208 items=0 pid=1716
