auditd log files



I would like to know how I can read the auditd log files stored in /var/log/audit.d.

 

I have a problem where the auditd system seems to go haywire, fills the /var filesystem up to its maximum allowed 80% and then starts to try and delete the old log files but the /var filesystem keeps filling up, at which point it ceases execution and then I have SysEdge reporting a massive CPU load and the whole server locks up.

 

I believe the auditd system’s behavior is symptomatic, rather than the cause of the problem.   I note that the auditd log files are in some binary format.  Is there a means to read them?

 

 

cheers
