Goal

When using the syslog daemon to isolate the audit output from the owner of the Oracle software, it is not possible to make the difference between the various audit files when coming from more than one database because, unfortunately, the audit files don't include neither the database id nor the database name.

This problem is addressed has been addressed in an Enhancement Request and, starting with 11.2, the database id will be introduced into the audit log of syslog.
