I have to find all the 'failed log ins' through audit report. then it has to be uploaded to a table. Can anyone suggest me how to do that? The script, either in windows or unix should be reusable and can read files one by one.

Thanks in advance.

I mean to say, we need quarterly report of failed login entries. And then the records have to be entered into another table for future reference.Hope, I will have some guidance in this regard.

Thanks.

This is a 2-tier system and I need a script( may be in unix or VB or something like) that can read log files in oracle one by one and can be reusable later. I don't need a trigger to do that. This will be done as part of quarterly excercise.

Thanks for the tips.

There is NO session log UNLESS you audit.
Read about it and then come back if you have any more question.

Michel

Thanks Michael for the suggestion.I am back for more inputs again. As suggested, we have to collect the audit information from the list of .aud files present in a log table. The log table has the files with information like ORACLE_HOME = path_name,System name(Linux),Node name,Release,Version,Machine,Instance name,Oracle process number,Unix process pid,SESSIONID,ENTRYID,RETURNCODE etc.We don't want a table for this, but a log table for performance issues. I Appreciate for quick help in this regard.

Thanks.

You don't want a table but a table? I have to say I don't understand what you want.

Michel, I mean to say we don't want to query a table for this, but we need to get the details from a log table. As suggested to me, We need to track the failed log in users from the log where the files are in .aud format. There are thousands of .aud files from which I need to segregate the failed ones. Hope, I have given the clear picture now.
Thanks for quick response.

You repeat the same thing, it is not clearer. What is a log table if it is not a table? How to you get the information from a table without querying it?

I suggested to "query DBA_AUDIT_SESSION" not to use file system auditing mode.
