Discussion

It is critical for the appropriate personnel to be aware if a system is at risk of failing to process audit logs as required. Without this notification, the security personnel may be unaware of an impending failure of the audit capability, and system operation may be adversely affected. Audit processing failures include software/hardware errors, failures in the audit capturing mechanisms, and audit storage capacity being reached or exceeded.

Check Content

Verify the BIG-IP appliance is configured to alert the ISSO and SA (at a minimum) in the event of an audit processing failure. Navigate to the BIG-IP System manager >> System >> Logs >> Configuration >> Options. Verify "MCP" under the "Audit Logging" section is set to Debug. If the BIG-IP appliance is not configured to alert in the event of an audit processing failure, this is a finding.
