|Oracle® Access Manager Installation Guide
The Oracle Access Manager auditing feature collects and presents data pertaining to policy and profile settings, system events, and usage patterns. Oracle Access Manager can generate two types of audit reports:
Static: These reports are derived from policy and profile information that is stored on the Oracle Access Manager directory server.
Dynamic: These reports are derived from Access System and Identity System events that are collected from the servers in your system.
At the most detailed level, dynamic audit reports reveal when a system event was triggered and who triggered it. At a higher level, these reports can reveal component load levels, resource request patterns, system intrusion attempts, and overall system performance.
In addition to auditing, Oracle Access Manager supports logging, SNMP monitoring, and other reporting features.
You can record all dynamic audit reports and some static audit reports to disk file, to a relational database, or both. Some static reports can also be displayed in limited form through the graphical user interface.
Displaying audit reports on-screen or sending audit output to disk files does not require the installation of special components. If you intend to display audit reports in this way, you must complete configuration instructions in the Oracle Access Manager Identity and Common Administration Guide.
Auditing to a database is restricted to certain Oracle Access Manager system configurations and requires the installation of special components in addition to setup using the System Console. For instructions, see the Oracle Access Manager Identity and Common Administration Guide.
