Chapter 8 General Oracle Auditing

  1. Create Temp Table. As user SYS, create the table aud_temp from the original table as shown in the following query. While doing this, it may also be prudent to increase the storage parameters. However, since we have already created the tablespace as Locally Managed with Automatic Allocation of Segments, this action (the changes in storage) is not required for databases created with 9i and above.

create table auditor.aud_temp
tablespace audit_data
select * from aud$

  1. Rename. As user AUDITOR, rename the table to the appropriate value using the following statement:

rename aud_temp to aud$

  1. Create the Index. As user AUDITOR, create the index on the table.

create index i_aud1
on aud$ (sessionid, ses$tid)
tablespace audit_indx

Again, the storage clause is not required if the ASSM mode and LMT are selected in the tablespace AUDIT_INDX.

  1. Open the database. Remove the database from RESTRICTED mode.

Now the table aud$ will be under the AUDITOR schema and will be in tablespace AUDIT_DATA. The index will be in AUDIT_INDX. The growth can be handled easily in this set up and it will be easier to archive and purge data from this table.
