How to run the Vault Audit Report

UPDATED: March 28, 2017

How do I run the Vault Audit Report?  What information does it tell me?

1) Create a non-empty text file (it can contain just a few spaces.)  Name this file audit.adm
2) While the Vault server is running, place this file in the Vault/server/process directory
3) Monitor the e2loaderd log file, and you will see log entries like this:
14:36:36 begin audit
14:36:36 creating list file [info\list.20130329.csv]
14:36:36 creating audit file [info\audit.20130329.csv]
14:36:36 total pages [11]
14:36:36 total files [1]
14:36:36 peak [2013/03] pages [11]
14:36:36 end audit

4) once you see "end audit" (this can take some time depending on how many files you have ingested) you can look in Vault/server/info/ and find the two files listed above.


5) These files are in CSV format; they can be opened in Excel or other spreadsheets.

6) list.csv will contain information about the following:
File NameFile DateErrorProfileResource SetUncompressedCompressedPages

7) audit.csv will contain information about the following:
MonthTotal PagesLicence

This information can be helpful in determining if you are getting close to exceeding your licensed monthly limit for number of pages.
