8 Audit Vault Control (AVCTL) Reference

Use the Audit Vault Control (AVCTL) command-line utility to manage various Oracle Audit Vault components (for example, checking the status of collector agents or managing the Audit Vault Data Warehouse). When you run these commands, remember the following:

Table 8-1 describes the Audit Vault Control commands and where each is used, whether on the Audit Vault Server, on the Audit Vault collection agent, or in both places.

Section 8.15 describes the commands you must use if you must start, stop, or check the status of collection agents that were that have not been upgraded to this release.
