Configure Oracle Hosts in EventLog Analyzer
To configure hosts for which you want to monitor Oracle logs carry out the procedure given below.
After Configuring Oracle Hosts in EventLog Analyzer, carry out the configuration given below in Oracle server.
Oracle Server Configuration
For Oracle server installed in Windows platform
connect to sqlplus
ALTER SYSTEM SET AUDIT_TRAIL=OS SCOPE=SPFILE;
For Oracle Server installed in Unix platform
To enable Oracle syslog auditing, follow the procedure given below:
For example: ALTER SYSTEM SET AUDIT_TRAIL=OS SCOPE=SPFILE;
Set the AUDIT_SYSLOG_LEVEL parameter to specify a facility and priority in the format AUDIT_SYSLOG_LEVEL=facility.priority.
facility: Describes the part of the operating system that is logging the message. Accepted values are user, local0–local7, syslog, daemon, kern, mail, auth, lpr, news, uucp, and cron.
The local0–local7 values are predefined tags that enable you to sort the syslog message into categories. These categories can be log files or other destinations that the syslog utility can access. To find more information about these types of tags, refer to the syslog utility MAN page.
priority: Defines the severity of the message. Accepted values are notice, info, debug, warning, err, crit, alert, and emerg.
The syslog daemon compares the value assigned to the facility argument of the AUDIT_SYSLOG_LEVEL parameter with the syslog.conf file to determine where to log information.
For example, the following statement identifies the facility as local1 with a priority level of warning:
See Oracle Database Reference for more information about AUDIT_SYSLOG_LEVEL.
For example, assuming you had set the AUDIT_SYSLOG_LEVEL to local1.warning, enter the following:
This setting logs all warning messages to the /var/log/audit.log file.
Now, all audit records will be captured in the file /var/log/audit.log through the syslog daemon.
Print Server Configuration
