note
The Audit scanner process is a primary component of the VigilEnt Password Manager product. This process is responsible for enforcing the password attribute features for password lifetime, account dormancy, account expiration, break-in detection, and the creation of e-mail alert notifications. It is an Oracle job, set by default, to run every three minutes while the database is running. If the audit scanner process stops or is manually stopped, then these product features will not be available.
