       faillog - login failure logging file

       /var/log/faillog maintains a count of login failures and the limits for
       each account. The file is fixed length record, indexed by numerical
       UID. Each record contains the count of login failures since the last
       successful login; the maximum number of failures before the account is
       disabled; the line the last login failure occurred on; the date the
       last login failure occurred; and the time in seconds how long the
       account will be locked after a failure.

       The structure of the file is:

	  struct    faillog {
	       short   fail_cnt;
	       short   fail_max;
	       char    fail_line[12];
	       time_t  fail_time;
	       long    fail_locktime;

	  Failure logging file.
