Parameter ID Definition

Selection (one-or-more):

  • full system shutdown
  • partial system shutdown
  • degraded operational mode with limited mission or business functionality available
au-05.04_odp.02 audit logging failures



Organizations determine the types of audit logging failures that can trigger automatic system shutdowns or degraded operations. Because of the importance of ensuring mission and business continuity, organizations may determine that the nature of the audit logging failure is not so severe that it warrants a complete shutdown of the system supporting the core organizational mission and business functions. In those instances, partial system shutdowns or operating in a degraded mode with reduced capability may be viable alternatives.
