Here's a very basic one that I've used.  It only hits one ipc call, but
it does trigger the audit hooks in msgsnd

# gcc -o test_msgget test_msgget.c
# auditctl -a exit,always -S ipc
# tail /var/log/audit/audit.log

#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/ipc.h>
#include <sys/msg.h>
#include <sys/errno.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main() {

	int rc = 0;
	int msgid = 0;
	int mode;

	mode = S_IRWXU;
	if( ( msgid = msgget( IPC_PRIVATE, mode ) ) == -1 ) {
		printf("ERROR: Unable to allocate new message queue: errno=%i\n", errno );
		goto EXIT;

	if( ( rc = msgctl( msgid, IPC_RMID, 0 ) ) == -1 ) {
		printf( "Error removing message queue with ID = [%d]: errno = [%i]\n", msgid, errno );
		goto EXIT;

	return rc;
