    EBS R12 audit


      EBS R12.1





      Is there  FND tables or SYS$ table, where I can query if auditing is enabled by any users?

      Sometimes I wonder if this is the cause why our logs is growing so big everyday.



      Please help...



      Kind regards,

          Hi JC,


          Usually in EBS , we audit user sign-on activities by setting Profile Option "Sign-On:Audit Level" at different levels.

          Other than that, you can enable AuditTrail to audit particular tables by setting up shadow tables, but that's not supposed to be the cause of growth of logs.


          To summarize, it's barely possible for the sign-on audit to cause significant growth, therefore, you should first identify the types of logs, whether they are diagnostic logs, JVM logs, control logs, core files, or concurrent logs/output files.

          Then you can further determine how you can RESOLVE the issue that's been causing the log growth, LOWER log levels (such as fnd diagnostics), or PURGE / ARCHIVE the redundant logs.

            Which logs? On the server or logging tables in EBS?

                Once find the size of FND_LOG_MESSAGES.


                select bytes/1024/1024/1024 from dba_segments where segment_name like '%FND_LOG_MESSAGES%;



                Use the concurrent program: 'Purge Diagnostic and Log Messages' to clear the messages.


                Usually when you enable FND: Diagnostics, this will increase. Try this and tell me if its working to find all details about FND_LOG_MESSAGES or you can simply query from Front End also.
