suggestion require to compress and use cmdctrl.db

Hi,
We have PAM3.2 server with 100GB disk space. we have more than 300 Agent servers (including Windows , Linux , Database) and we are using RDP Relay, SSH Relay, DB monitoring , PCKSH and Run as privileged user features.we have noticed that cmdctrl.db which contains command control rules with usernames and hosts, getting larger in size day by day.
Is there any procedure to compress and use it. So disk size can be utilized. Please advice how exactly we can use the PAM server. We are worried about how to manage cmdctrl.db.

Thank you

Hi,
As I know that there is option in audit settings where can control the rollover of the audit database files. If we move the rollover files (cmdctrl.db file) in archive location can It be viewed further in reporting console of PAM ? Please provide an idea.

cmdctrl.db is likely in the 'audit/' directory in this case so it will contain the keystroke and session details found in the Reporting Console > Command Control Reports.

The following TID may help in configuring audit rollover and other log rollover:

Yes you can select additional log files from Reporting Console if they haven't been compressed as part of the perl rollover script:
