    How can I stop .aud files from generating.

    We're running RAC on Solaris 2.9 using GRID control.

    I have a question about .aud audit files the instances are generating. Since our GRID CONTROL connects constantly we generate multiple .aud files in both the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/audit and the $ORACLE_BASE/admin/SID/adump directories.

    We've put a script in place to clean these files out daily but is there a way to turn this feature off? Our system is generating thousands of these files a day!

    I tried setting the parameter "audit_sys_operations" to FALSE and it didn't stop the system from generating these files. I even tried setting the "audit_file_dest" to /dev/null on a test RAC system (which I knew it wouldn't like ) and as suspected it wouldn't let me set it to that.

    Any input would be appreciated!
