show parameter audit

can I ask what "db" represents when running the query in the question title, in terms of what, what exactly will be being audited, action wise? I have run this query over a number of databases, so return NONE others DB. I just wondered what kinds of thing will be being audited, with such a configuration?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You may want to refer to the documentation on this one :)

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/network.112/e36292/auditing.htm#DBSEG352

There are certain standard auditing options that Oracle can undertake that are written to sys.aud$

If you set audit_trail to NONE, these features are disabled.
Setting to DB means that these rows are written to SYS.AUD$
You can also set to OS, which would write the rows to an operating system level file.

There's a lot of stuff that can be captured, so I'd recommend reading that chapter of the documentation and coming back with any specific questions you might have.
