DB Audit Expert Components

Audit Tables — system event and data changes are captured in audit trail repository tables stored in the local database. Audit trail tables contain audit records of database activity. Central Repository — used to store all audit trails from remote database servers and optionally audit trails containing records from O/S and application log files forwarded from remote syslogs and event logs.
Management Console — deploys repository tables and defines the auditing schedule and configuration of each auditing variable for populating the repository tables.
Alert Centerused to periodically analyze the collected audit data in the audit trails and in the database, generate alerts and scheduled reports.
Report Viewer — used on a single workstation in a network or a single network server for the purpose of running ad hoc audit reports. Performance Auditing Module — used to collect and analyze performance data that is not available in Windows Performance Manager. It provides over 40 reports for analyzing the performance efficiency of SQL queries and the entire SQL Server environment.
