BOE XI 3.1 Removing Audit log files
Hi there experts,
we have an issue with our production BOE install (3.1 SP7) whereby we have over 39,000 audit log files awaiting processing in the BOE_HOME/auditing folder. These audit files were generated a few months back when we had an issue with the system whereby thousands of scheduled events were created, we are not sure how. The removal of these events has had a knock on effect in that we have too many audit files to process, ie the system just cant process them all quickly enough.
So my question is can we just remove these audit files from the auditing directory with no knock on effects as we dont need them loading into the audit database anyways as they are all multiples of the same event.
As an aside when we upgraded from SP3 to SP7 the problem went away, ie no new audit files for these delete events being generated. We are still to establish how/why these audit events were created but for the time being we just want to be able to remove them. Unfortunately as its a production system we don't want to just take a chance and remove them without some advice first.
thanks in advance
