remote(8) Audit dispatcher plugin. The default location for this file
is /etc/audisp/zos-remote.conf, however, a different file can be

The audispd-zos-remote plugin will queue inputed events to the
maximum of q_depth events while trying to submit those remotely.
This can handle burst of events or in case of a slow network
connection. However, the audispd-zos-remote plugin will drop
events in case the queue is full. The default queue depth is 64
- Increase this value in case you are experiencing event drop
due to full queue (audispd-zos-remote will log this to syslog).
