Auditing setup

Auditing does not start automatically when the database server is first installed. Before any user actions are audited, the DBSSO or AAO must perform the following tasks to configure the database server for auditing:

  • Specify events to audit in the default, user, and global audit masks (DBSSO)
  • Specify how the database server must behave if an auditing error occurs when an audit record is written (AAO)
  • Determine the appropriate level of auditing (AAO)
  • Turn on auditing (AAO)
  • Specify the directory where audit files are located (AAO)
