How to Enable Minimal Auditing in Oracle ?

In Oracle 10g Audit is not enable by default.
For new Oracle 11g database auditing is enabled by default. Unfortunately Oracle does not setup a housekeeping. To make sure, that you do not end up with a full AUDIT_TRAIL you have to either switch off auditing or define some housekeeping jobs. With DBMS_AUDIT_MGMT this is a pretty easy job. It is that easy, that it is worth to think about having some kind of rolling audit window. Define a short retention time to save disk space, but long enough to have access to the audit information of the last hours or days.
