Ensuring the 'auditd' service is active ensures audit records generated by the kernel can be written to disk, or that appropriate actions will be taken if other obstacles exist.


The 'auditd' service is an essential userspace component of the Linux Auditing System, as it is responsible for writing audit records to disk. The 'auditd' service can be enabled with the following commands:

# chkconfig auditd on
# service auditd start
