How to Disable Cloudera Manager Navigator Audit Server Auditing on the BDA as a Temporary Workaround to Reduce Audit Log File Buildup (Doc ID 2249246.1)

Last updated on MARCH 31, 2017

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.5.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

In the case of a very large log file build up in the Navigator Audit Server log directories, the recommendation is to add filters to limit audits.  See the Cloudera documentation:

Configuring Service Audit Properties
Cloudera Navigator Auditing

If adding filters is not possible, you you can disable Navigator auditing. This would be considered a temporary solution until filters to limit audits can be implemented.  When you disable auditing for a service there will be no audit data collected until this option is turned on.

Only disable auditing for the service(s) responsible for very large log file build up in their associated Navigator Audit Server log directory. Once auditing is turned off, this should should prevent files from being generated into the audit log directories.
