Audit data archival security

Audit data is initially recorded in the database in which the audit event occurred. This storage solution is often a short-term one, since the growth of the stored audit data can, over time, affect the overall performance and efficiency of the databases applications and the generation of audit reports.
A solution is to identify a designated database that will maintain the audit data for one or more databases over a longer term. To move audit data from short- to long-term storage, a user must have the audit data archiver privilege. The audit data archiver can then move the data by using either an archive application that the user has developed or the Audit Archiving utility supplied by OpenEdge.
The Audit Archiving utility uses data integrity checking to ensure that data is not lost or corrupted in the process. The utility also has the optional ability to validate the data integrity of each audit data record.
