Description Steve Grubb 2007-09-10 08:46:06 EDT
Description of problem:
The OBJ_PID audit event looks like this:

type=OBJ_PID msg=audit(08/21/2007 11:42:36.556:490) : opid=1709  

It has no information useful for CAPP environments. It should have the uid of
the process being signalled and the process name if possible. If the process
name cannot be added due to being on the hotpath, then we can do without.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.-a entry,always -S kill
2. kill -9 nnnn
3. ausearch -m OBJ_PID --start recent

Sent a patch to linux-audit for comment

It wastes 16x16 bytes of memory for every task that sends a signal if we do
signal auditing, i doubt it generates much concern....
