auditd sending logs to /var/logs/messages we want to disable it. How to do that?


i changee active = no but still sending lots to syslog

  • You can place filters in syslog at the worst situation. – Rui F Ribeiro Nov 19 '15 at 23:29

Edit /etc/audisp/plugins.d and change args = LOG_INFOto this: args = local6

Then edit /etc/rsyslog.conf and add local6 to the "some catch-all log files" block so it's like this:

        local6.none           -/var/log/messages

Also change the line args = in /etc/audisp/plugins.d to: args = LOG_LOCAL6

This was adapted from this post.
