Chapter 8 General Oracle Auditing

create table aud_0307
tablespace aud_arch_data
select * from aud$

This will create a table with minimal logging in the desired tablespace.

Next, truncate the original table aud$.

truncate table aud$;

The truncation of table aud$ is supported. It is the only SYS owned object that can be manipulated by the user. Truncation will reset the high water mark of the table.

Shutdown the database, change the initialization file to reflect audit_trail = db and then restart.

The tablespace AUD_ARCH_DATA can be made read-only now and be backed up only once.

alter table audit_arch_data read only

Since it is read-only, there is no need to make subsequent backups.

It may not be necessary to keep this database online. It is conceivable that this table can be exported and the export file preserved.
