The following table describes the two types of audit repositories for storing audit messages in the Metasys system. The ADS Audit Repository applies to either Metasys Server: ADS or ADX.

Table 1. Audit Repositories

Type

Description

Local (Engine) Audit Repository

  • Provides temporary storage for audit messages on the Engine.
  • Allows the audit messages stored in the Engine local audit repository to be displayed in the Audit Viewer.
  • Forwards audit messages from the Engine local audit repository to the Default Destination. See Default Destination and Message Forwarding.

ADS Audit Repository

  • Provides permanent storage for audit messages on the Metasys Server platform.
  • Places audit messages generated on a Metasys Server platform directly into the ADS audit repository.
  • Receives audit messages from multiple Engine local audit repositories and provides permanent storage for the audit messages. The ADS audit repository is usually defined as the default destination for audit messages from Engine local audit repositories.
  • Allows the audit messages stored in the ADS audit repository to be displayed in the Audit Viewer.

For information on configuring the Engine local audit repository and the default destination, click one of the following:

A Database Timeout Error can occur when viewing audit messages if the repository contains too many unfiltered audit messages before the system times out (typically, one million messages). To prevent this error, back up and purge audit message records from the repository (JCIAuditTrails) using the Metasys Database Manager on a regular basis.
