I am writing an Oracle Security Test plan. One of the controls requires Oracle to stop processing transactions if the Oracle OS Audit files or the sys.aud$ table reaches storage capacity. I cannot find any documentation that lets me know what happens to Oracle when this occurs. Does Oracle react the same way as when the Archive Log area reaches storage capacity? The version of Oracle that I am using is on Linux x86-64.
