Remote syslog from Linux and Solaris

Auditing operations with Oracle Database is very easy. The default configuration, where SYSDBA operations go to ‘audit_file_dest’ (the ‘adump’ directory) and other operations go to the database may be sufficient to log what is done but is definitely not a correct security audit method as both destinations can have their audit trail deleted by the DBA. If you want to secure your environment by auditing the most privileged accounts, you need to send the audit trail to another server.
