Security Audit Log Profile Parameter

Hello People,

I have been trying to find some information about the System Profile Parameters that are required for Security Audit Logs.

Can someone please explain what the parameter rsau/max_diskspace/per_day means? All that the SAP documentation says is that it is the Maximum size of all security audit files per day

My understanding was that the audit files are stored on the application server itself and only 1 file is generated everyday. How then, is this parameter used?

Regards

Joy

    Hi Joy,

    I do not think this parameter should have any adverse effect. Depends on your server's hard disk space availability.

    rsau/max_diskspace/local gives space for a single security audit file. When we say that rsau/max_diskspace/per_day

    gives space for all, by my understanding we are limiting the total space that these files can take up.

    The max size of single audit file is 2GB and total space for all i.e. rsau/max_diskspace/per_day is 1024 GB

    When maximum space limit is reached, logging terminated. Next day new file is created.

    Couldn't find more explanation. 😊

    regards, Sean.

    Hi ,

    rsau/max_diskspace/per_day - Total size (Max) of all audit logs

    rsau/max_diskspace/per_file - Size per log file

    Parameter rsau/enable should have value 1 or audit is active via SM19 and check file names of the audit files FN_AUDIT.
