If you have auditing enabled and set to DB, users will not be able to login to the database as they will not be able to write to the sys.aud$ table.

Subject: What happens to Oracle when sys.aud$ table or Oracle OS Audit file reaches storage capacity?
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 184.108.40.206 on Linux x86-64.
