Ensure audit log storage size is configured (Not Scored)

Level 2 - Server
Level 2 - Workstation 

Configure the maximum size of the audit log file. Once the log reaches the maximum size, it will be rotated and a new log file will be started.

It is important that an appropriate size is determined for log files so that they do not impact the system and audit data is not lost.

Run the following command and ensure output is in compliance with site policy:

# grep max_log_file /etc/audit/auditd.conf 
max_log_file = <MB>

Set the following parameter in /etc/audit/auditd.conf in accordance with site policy:

max_log_file = <MB>

The max_log_file parameter is measured in megabytes.
