    Question Unanswered: DB Activity Monitoring


    You’d have to excuse my ignorance as DB isn’t my field.

    Two questions:

    1. Are there features (either from the DB vendors or at the OS/HW level) that allow Real-Time activity monitoring and access prevention of the database? Obviously the log files can be viewed later but I’m wondering about real time notification of access, be it from external or more importantly from privileged/inside user.

    2. Understand there are DB Activity Monitoring (DAM) providers such as IBM’s Guardium, McAfee’s Sentrigo and Imperva. I also understand that - comparatively speaking - not many organizations use these products. What is/has been your experience with these if any?

    Appreciate your thoughts. Cheers

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
