OS Audit Files *.aud are Still Generated After Migrating to Unified Audit (Doc ID 2020881.1)

Last updated on MARCH 18, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After migrating to Unified Auditing, audit records are only expected to be generated in database tables and OS spillover files (*.bin) under audit destination path.

However, *.aud files are still being generated under audit destination path, and the files seem to be generated by background processes such as m000 and m001. (Or, sometimes by foreground processes as well).
