Situation

What are the proper clean up guidelines for all AS/400 auditing data, especially the ALPF01 file?

Resolution

The retention and removal of system auditing data depends on:

  • System size
  • System utilization/workload
  • How much of the system's information is being gathered
  • How much storage space (DASD) is available. 

Each environment is different.

Regarding the ALPF01, review the section for "System Access Analysis" in the PSAudit User Guide for menu Option 2 - Purge Logged Data (Page 3-11).  Data can be saved to tape if desired.  ALPF01 and ALPF03 can be purged both interactively and by batch job.

The User Guide can be accessed from the following link in the Support section of NetIQ.com:
