Significant Virtual Memory Usage By AVagent (Doc ID 2348922.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We have 30+ DBs on this Exadata node. Based on this information we would have 3 Audit Trails per database and that would be 90 Audit Trails. You're saying we would need to have approximately 12-15 distinct AV Agents running on this Exadata node? I do not believe that would be an improvement in performance.

We have other Exadata nodes running mulitenant with 80 pluggable DBs in a single container. That would be approximately ~200 AV Audit Trails we would monitor. This target would require 20 to 29 AV Agents?

I don't see how this is a sustainable model. An EM Agent can ingest dozens of target logs and metric collections. Why would this AV agent only be able to pull in 5-7 well defined SYS.AUD$, UNIFIED_AUDIT_TRAIL, adump, or FGA_LOG$ directories or XML files?
