Auditing is the monitoring and recording of selected user database actions. It can be based on individual actions, such as the type of SQL statement run, or on combinations of factors that can include name, application, time, and so on. Security policies can cause auditing when specified elements in an Oracle Database are accessed or altered, including content. You can set up and adjust audit settings easily within the Enterprise Manager interface. With Enterprise Manager, you can view the database audit configuration and manage audited objects, privileges, and statements. You can also view the content of the audit trail. Out-of-box, Enterprise Manager also provides audit reports to help you monitor successful and failed login attempts, as well as SYSUSER operations.
