I have so many ora_*****.aud files in the /adump folder.
Does oracle by default generates .aud files?

1. I think this is normal behaviour of the oracle to generate .aud files, am i right?

Please tell me does oracle generates file for every sys connection?

Sample file.
Audit file /home/oracle/admin/ora01/adump/ora_24340.aud
Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.2.0.1.0 - Production
With the Partitioning and Data Mining options
ORACLE_HOME = /home/oracle/product/10gR2
System name:	Linux
Node name:	
Release:	2.6.5-7.97-smp
Version:	#1 SMP Fri Jul 2 14:21:59 UTC 2004
Machine:	i686
Instance name: oracleora
Redo thread mounted by this instance: 1
Oracle process number: 27
Unix process pid: 24340, image: oracle@TEST1 

Mon Jul 14 01:00:03 2008
ACTION : 'CONNECT'
DATABASE USER: '/'
PRIVILEGE : SYSDBA
CLIENT USER: oracle
CLIENT TERMINAL: 
STATUS: 0


2. Should i delete old files from the database? I think there will no problem if i delete the old files, am i right?

1. Yes it is the normal behaviour and yes it will generate a file each time sys connect.

2. It is audit file, you can delete them as you want, there are only there for you to know who connect as sys and when.
