You really should ask these questions separately.

That said: How do you define 'logging'?  That can mean a great many things.

Both DBMS have different understanding of how to perform transaction logging (if you mean that). As slightwv told you already, please elaborate more about your question. In particular you should add what you already (think you) know, because proper explanation might get very complex.

OK, audit what?  Even the term 'auditing' can mean a few different things.

I would start, as always, in the online docs for your version:

>>we don't have any spfile in our database

What version of Oracle are you using?

I suggest you spend time in the online docs.  That is the best reference on how to properly set up auditing.

It also talks about purging audit records and some other things you'll need to know.

The audit_trail parameter is just that, a database parameter.  It can be set in the pfile just like any other.
