Audit Files

Overview

The Order Server creates audit files that contain a variety of order and fill information. Located in the <root drive>:ttauditfiles directory, the audit files follow the naming convention: Exchange-flavor_YYYY-MM-DD.cba where DD is the two-digit day, MM is the two-digit month, and YYYY is the four-digit year.

When requested, you must provide a readable copy of the audit files to GMEX. Use the audit_convert.exe program, located in the <root drive>:ttbin directory, to convert the audit file into a readable copy. You can use this program to either convert all audit files in a directory or to convert a single audit file.

For general information on audit files, refer to Appendix B, System Files in the TT Gateway Architecture System Administration Manual Version 7X.

Audit File Conversion

To convert a single audit file:

  1. Open a Command window.
  2. Type: audit_convert.exe absolutefilename

    Where absolutefilename is the path and filename of the audit file you want to convert.

    Example Single Audit File

    audit_convert.exe c:ttauditfilesGMEX-A_2007-10-08.cba

  3. To close the Console window, type Exit.

To convert multiple audit files:

  1. Open a Command window.
  2. Type: audit_convert.exe directory exchange-flavor Where:
    • directory is the location of your audit files.
    • Exchange-flavor is the name of the TT Gateway that produced the audit files.

    Example Multiple Audit Files:

    audit_convert.exe c:ttauditfiles GMEX-A

  3. To close the Console window, type Exit.
