    auditing

    I am running Oracle 10.2.0.1.0 on AIX 5.3.

    My question is why am I getting audit files in my audit directory and how
    can I disable this functionality.

    SQL> SHOW PARAMETER AUDIT

    NAME TYPE VALUE
    ------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
    audit_file_dest string /oracle/data/pri/audit
    audit_sys_operations boolean FALSE
    audit_syslog_level string
    audit_trail string FALSE


    ls -tl /oracle/data/pri/audit
    total 24
    -rw-rw---- 1 oracle dba 567 Jul 01 10:17 ora_618544.aud
    -rw-rw---- 1 oracle dba 574 Jul 01 10:17 ora_450632.aud
    -rw-rw---- 1 oracle dba 569 Jul 01 10:17 ora_618542.aud


    Thanks in advance to all that answer the post

    Ora10gR2 generates some auditing by default including: Database startup, Database shutdown and SYSDBA connections

    I take it there is no way to disable this or is it fixed in Oracle 11?

    Lastly, to remove the files would it be okay to use a find command and remove them from disk or is there an oracle command that I need to run that will remove them from both oracle tables/views and the disk?

    Please check documentation, this is not a bug.

    Unix commands would do.
