We send our audit trail to xml audit trail files. We then query it from v$xml_audit_trail

For example things like getting a histogram of login times to see if there was a sudden surge in connect activity or finding the name of an app server which is locking an account by sending invalid passwords. Really easy now but with OS files? How are other people handling this?  

I’m told all the information will be available in Splunk though I have no idea how easy that will be to access.
