Oracle's Auditing features allow the database administrator to monitor selected aspects of database activity. Auditing facilitates database tuning and may also enhance database security.

The three types of auditing are:

Object Auditing

Statement Auditing

Privilege Auditing

Auditing is turned on or off by the AUDIT_TRAIL parameter in the initialization file. Permissible values include:

DB enables auditing and stores audit trail in the database.

OS enable auditing and stores audit trail in the file system.

NONE disables auditing.
