Hi every one i had a small doubt.because of to reduce the burden on system table space,
i am planing to write one object which will truncate the sys.aud$
before that, it should write the content into another user`s object. is it meaningful ? i mean shall i proceed in that way or any other alternate method.I read Natalka Roshak`s blog on AUDITING.but thats on different version
please suggest me

regards
sriram

OK, Now I answered:

It is meaningful if your audit requirements need it, otherwise it is not.

the out put is like
ind> ho user

No background process involved, it is your SQL*Plus.
HO is short version of HOST command.

HERE RAGHAV is my user.which should be audited.but the other audit options i didn`t understand.but by checking the dba_common_audit_trail table i found that my anothe user is also participating i mean...the table records the actions of that user also.for that i did the following...
SQL>noaudit all by appowner;
noaudit succeded
SQL>noaudit insert table by appowner;
noaudit succeded
.in the sameway done for all the AUDIT OPTIONS SPECIFIED BY OTHER THAN THE USER RAGHAV.
but still i am getting the audit records of APPOWNER.
any suggestion. AS I WANT ONLY RAGHAV`s records,i am truncating the aud$ table , for each 500 rows in aud$ table.does it effect my database? the record are populating when ever the the user is connect through the tomcat i mean our application.

NOAUDIT deactivate ONLY audit the exactly same AUDIT command. It has no effect (and is ignored) on different AUDIT commands.

If you want audit only one user, you have to NOAUDIT all commands you made and reexecute AUDIT commands for this specific user.

Please when a column contains no (meaningful) value remove it from the output you post to limit the width of the lines. Here PROXY_NAME is useless and prevent me from reading the last column without scrolling.

Michel

You haven't to write anything, you just have to execute the correct audit statements.
First remove ALL audit. Check there is none. Then execute the correct audit statements and check this is this the one you really want.
