IDM 7.2.0

Change audit write behavior

You can buffer audit logging to minimize the writes on your systems. Configure buffering either in conf/audit.json, or using the admin UI.

To configure buffering for specific event handler in the admin UI, click Configure > System Preferences and click on the Audit tab. When you customize or create an event handler, you can configure the following settings:

Audit Buffering Options
Property UI Text Description

enabled

True or false

Enables / disables buffering.

autoFlush

True or false; whether the Audit Service automatically flushes events after writing them to disk.

The following sample code illustrates where you would configure these properties in the audit.json file.

...
    "eventHandlers" : [
      {
        "config" : {
          ...
          "buffering" : {
            "autoFlush" : false,
            "enabled" : false
          }
        },
...

You can set up autoFlush when buffering is enabled. IDM then writes data to audit logs asynchronously, while autoFlush functionality ensures that the audit service writes data to logs on a regular basis.

If audit data is important, do activate autoFlush. It minimizes the risk of data loss in case of a server crash.
