Auditing Force Level (QAUDFRCLVL)

The Auditing Force Level (QAUDFRCLVL) system value determines how often new audit journal entries are forced from memory to auxiliary storage. This system value controls the amount of auditing data that may be lost if the system ends abnormally.

Note: This system value is a restricted value. See Security system values for details on how to restrict changes to security system values and a complete list of the restricted system values.
Table 1. Possible values for the QAUDFRCLVL system value
Value Description
*NOTAVL This value is displayed to indicate that the system value is not available to the user because the user does not have either *AUDIT or *ALLOBJ special authority. The system value cannot be set to this value.
*SYS The system determines when journal entries are written to auxiliary storage based on internal system performance.
number-of- records Specify a number between 1 and 100 to determine how many audit entries can accumulate in memory before they are written to auxiliary storage. The smaller the number, the greater the effect on system performance.

Recommended value: *SYS provides the best auditing performance. However, if your installation requires that no audit entries be lost when your system ends abnormally, you must specify 1. Specifying 1 might impair performance.
