There is an audit record kept in the audit directory outside the database for stops and starts (at least in 10.2). Agree with the rest. ________________________________ From: oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of David Fitzjarrell Sent: Wednesday, August 03, 2011 4:33 PM To: pdba1966@xxxxxxxxxxx; oracle-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Auditing statements Audit drop user; -- addresses the schema drop (although it doesn't specify "unused") I see no way to audit any autonomous transactions outside of instrumenting the code to populate a table. You'll need to set up audits for all create statements -- there is no 'blanket' audit for creates. Same for drops and inserts, with the added criteria of "whenever not successful" to only capture failed inserts. GRANTs also need to be individually audited (grant table , etc.) but this also audits REVOKEs. There is no audit on starting/stopping the database because those operations are recorded in the alert log. If anyone knows any differently I'll be happy to be proven wrong.

They don't work. These are 188.8.131.52 databases on Standard Edition. Are there some other broad-based generic commands that can be run that will capture the purpose of what is listed here? If they want it to capture information from every user in the database, wouldn't we have to also explicitly state each user name, otherwise all we are really auditing is actions by the sys user since that is where the command is being run from?
