The audit daemon is required to handle its own log rotation. This is dictated by
CAPP requirements. It already has 3 settings in /etc/auditd.conf to handle this.
You can set the log size, the action to perform when it reaches that size, and
how many logs to keep.

Ah, thanks Steve. Sorry for the noise, should have looked further.
