    Question

    Is it possible to audit SQL statements (including that of triggers) in a way that they are written to a text file?

    I've enabled Audit Trail in DB mode but don't have the slightest idea on where to get the executed statements.

    TIA

    Cool

    Arda,

    AUDIT_TRAIL=DB enables systemwide auditing where audited records are written to the database audit trail, the SYS.AUD$ table

    AUDIT_TRAIL=OS enables systemwide auditing where audited records are written to the operating system's audit trail

    AUDIT_TRAIL=NONE disables auditing. This is the default value.

    If you have set AUDIT_TRAIL = OS, modify the "init.ora" file to specify the destination for the audited records using the AUDIT_FILE_DEST parameter.

    To get the auditing information from SYS.AUD$ spool the info you need to text file.

    Hope that helps,

    Question

    Clio,

    AUDIT_FILE_DEST is a 9i parameter, isn't it?

    8i reports it as an "unknown parameter". Is there a workaround??

    spool the info you need

    What would that info be (i.e: which records should I select from SYS.AUD$) in order to retrieve the SQL statements ?

    TIA

    No, it's available in 8i.

    You should specify the OS you are using. I assume you are using NT/2000, as AUDIT_FILE_DEST is realy not supported on that platform. In NT/2000 OS audit trail is allways written to the system's EventLog, you can't redirect it to another file.
