Subject Re: [Discuss] Phasing support for DB audit
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2016 05:54:43 GMT
Hi Balaji:

I agree storing audit data in DB is not scalable for long term data.

What would be the path forward for users who are already using DB to store
audit data and managing the DB themselves?

Adding user@ranger list.

Thank you,
Vel
