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.
