KB 140171: Size of audit files does not match the size displayed in the IDENTIKEY Appliance Configuration Tool.2/24/2017 10:25:01 AM
The audit file size displayed in the Log File Management section of the configtool and size after the audit file has been downloaded do not match. This article explains why.
The audit data is stored in a database on the IDENTIKEY Appliance.
When you download the audit data, an export to a text file is made.
In the Log File Management, the space on disk of the database is shown (including indexes, overhead, db tables, ...)
In the text-export there are no indexes, and some information is duplicated that the Database optimizes and stores only once.
This results in a different size.
In the Log File Management, we show the size used on disk so you can see when the audit data is about to fill up your disk.
The Log File Management shows the size on disk of the database. This Database is optimized for quick insertions and fast querying.
The text-file is an export of the Database and is optimized for easy viewing/compatibility. Therefore, the size will differ (though generally a large DB will result in a large file).
Applies to: IDENTIKEY Appliance
