After starting Server Automation, only a single audit job can be run. A subesequent audit job never finishes. The log in the spin indicates lots of garbage collection. After stopping and restarting Server Automation, another audit job can again be run.

Garbage Collection (GC) problem as a result of Oracle Upgrade.


During the installation of Server Automation the script creates a public synonym for audit_actions that points to truth.audit_actions.

After an upgrade of the Oracle database from ->  the public sysnonym is overwritten. The Oracle upgrade recreates the public synonim audit_actions to point to sys.audit_actions.



Customer repaired the root cause.
HP Support broght in dba experts in HP development. Customer admini brought in the customer's dba.
HP dba experts (Aarti, Brian Kris, Robert) had provide a script for diagnois. It showed that there was no alert log for SA.   Step 4 indicates a problem (see below)


Run the following on the Oracle db machine
su - oracle
sqlplus "/ as sysdba"

1) select name, value from audit_params;

Col schema_user format a10
Col what format a50
Set line 200
Select job, schema_user, last_date, this_date, next_date,broken, what from dba_jobs;

3) show parameter job

4) Get the Alert.log file from customers Oracle database.
4) Get the Alert.log file from customers Oracle database. ???????????????
From customers there is no alert.log file.

Opsware public synonym "audit_actions" was reverted back to pointing to "sys.audit_actions" as a consequence of on Oracle Upgrade to
