Audit Files


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.

Audit Convert Tool

You can use the audit_convert.exe program to convert the audit file into a comma separated value file (.csv) that works with most spreadsheet applications. 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 7.X.

To convert a single audit file:

  1. Open a Command window.
  2. Type: audit_convert.exeabsolutefilename

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

    Example Converting a Single Audit File

    audit_convert.exe c:ttauditfilesSFE-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.exedirectoryexchange-flavor


    • directory is the location of your audit files.
    • Exchange-Flavor is the name of the TT Gateway that produced the audit files.

    Example Converting Multiple Audit Files

    audit_convert.exe c:ttauditfiles SFE-A

  3. To close the Console window, type Exit.
