Generating audit reports
Audit collection criteria
represents the first level of audit selection. After the data is
gathered, it can be further processed, or reduced, to generate
a useful collection of data about a specific aspect of system operation.
The reduction function uses a file called a report template
to perform post-selection of audit records. This file is built by the audit
administrator interface program based on your input. You can build and save
multiple files, each with a different set of selection criteria. Reduction
may then be run several times on the same session data with a different
report template each time. You can build and save report templates used
frequently in data reduction. When the actual data reduction is needed, you
can use the files already built.
These tasks are associated with audit reports:
