Symptoms

Database auditing 'BY ACCESS' creates one audit record for every occurance of that audit action, irrespective of the number of times the audit action is performed in one user session.
In other words, 'audit select on scott.emp by access' would cause the database auditing to record two audit entries if , the select is performed on the scott.emp table twice during the same user session.
However, audit on the execution of a function 'by access' generates only one audit entry irrespective of the number of times the function is executed.
