Audit Portal

I am looking for a product that will provide me with an "Audit Portal".

Such a thing may not exist, but I am looking for something that will take all the logs created under a Solaris/Oracle installation and provide me with some sort of front end to make sense of it all. Things like "user access this file", "user logged onto this application" etc. Specifically I am interested in a way of pulling together all of the various audit logs into a single format so that it is easily searched.

I appreciate this might not exist, but I am hopeful!!!!

I think, what you are searching is the Basic Security Module

Go to /etc/security, there you'll find bsmconv / bsmunconv

The configfiles are audit_control and audit_user


Be carefull when playing around with it, as logging to much may enormously slow down your system, or even make it unusable.

I am no Solaris expert and I am actually looking at this for a friend.

Are there any tools available to maintain this audit or is it all from the command prompt. What we are looking for is a way of ensuring that if something occured we could trace back to what users did what for a given period...

the tools to achieve this are auditreduce and praudit... they are only command line based.

man audit

When BSM is enable, it will use CPU, Memory, Disk space for logs etc, etc.

Have a look at the following docs about BSM, to learn more:
