Novell Audit 2.0.2 NeWare filesystem instrumentation


AUDITNW.NLM will grow over time.
The memory leak appears to be related to NetWare (not eDirectory) login and logout events.
The faster the login and logout events occur, the more memory will be allocated to AUDITNW.NLM.



Go into the NetWare instrumentation and disable the logging of NetWare login and logout events. Then unload and load AUDITNW.NLM. If you need to audit login and logout events, you may want to use the eDirectory login and logout auditing functionality.


The issue is fixed in AUDITNW.NLM dated 15NOV2006 or later. Please go to and search for auditnw.nlm. If you cannot find a newer version of AUDITNW.NLM, then please use the workaround above until a newer AUDITNW.NLM is posted.
