To Generate a Report for an Audit File (deprecated)

Note: Audit Manager is deprecated and provided for backward compatibility only. We recommend that you use syslog events instead. See Enterprise Server Auditing for more information.


You use the Audit Manager Administration command line utility to do this. To generate a report for the active audit file, you must first make it available for dumping. See To Make the Active Audit File Available for Dumping.

mfauditadm -r [-o output-file-name] -f report-file-name [-d]


Generate a report.
-f report-audit-file
An audit file in the collection for which reports are to be generated.
-o output-file-name
Name of the report file to be created. If not specified, the report file name is derived from the report-audit-file name prefix, plus a .txt extension. For example, if report-audit-file filename is mfaudit.DOCTEST.aud_3, the report file created is mfaudit.DOCTEST.txt.
Mark the file as dumped.


mfauditadm -r -o auditdata.txt -f mfaudit.DOCTEST.aud_5
Note: Once an audit file has been dumped, you cannot generate a report for it, nor can you dump it again until it has been reused by the audit consolidator process.
