What are the best practices for audit report for SharePoint 2013 farm ?

I am looking for the best practices for audit reporting in SharePoint 2013 farm.Can anyone please provide me checklist/tools/guidelines on same ?
your help will be much appreciated.
Thanks and Regards,
Dipti Chhatrapati

This is quite open ended question. A sharepoint farm should be well maintained as per :
1. Microsoft's recommendations on : Topology, Hardware and Software requirements, Operational procedures and most important Capacity guidelines:
2. Organisation's IT policies and procedures : Farm Configuration, Workload and monitoring
3. Industry best practices
I would suggest to start thinking over these lines and create a plan for your Sharepoint farm.
You can then create powershell scripts to run these reports at certain frequency to find the changes, any deviation from the standard and health of the entire farm.
Hope this helps!!
I LOVE MS..... Thanks and Regards, Kshitiz (Posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.)

    What are the best practices to migrate VPN users for Inter forest mgration?

    It depends on a various factors. There is no "generic" solution or best practice recommendation. Which migration tool are you planning to use?
    Quest (QMM) has a VPN migration solution/tool.
    ADMT - you can develop your own service based solution if required. I believe it was mentioned in my blog post.

  • What are the best practice in report design ?

    According to you, what are the best practices in report desing about layout, fonts and colors ?

    It all depends that what type of report you are designing and what tool you are using - WebI or Crystal.
    And in WebI, if it is cross tab or Tabular report etc.
    One most important thing is that what is client requirement. May be client does not like which is best practice.
    On the base of my personal experience I will create few demo reports using different options - layout, colors and fonts and show them to client so that they may decide.

  • What are the best practices for generating an EPS logo from InDesign?

    Our costomer is running into technical issues with the logo we sent them, which was exported from Indesign. Images were not embedded and fonts missing. I was able to embed the images and fonts. However, we DO NOT want them to be able to make any text changes. So after exporting an eps, I opened the file in Adobe Illustrator and made all the text outlines. I hope this works. But I just wanted to post the question on what are the best practices for doing this?
    The client needs the logo with transparent background, images emebdded and type in outlines. Also, they need some space around the text. When I exported the eps, the file is right up on the edge of the type.

    It sounds like you are pretty far from "best practice" with regard to logo design and delivery.
    These days, the very use of the EPS format should be considered bad practice, and some other terms in your post, (i.e., 'images,' 'missing fonts'), make it sound like there is not a seasoned logo designer involved.
    That said, you probably already got the advice you need to get out of the immediate jam. However, without proper logo design, you and the client will soon be facing other problems. You should be delivering a 100% vector graphic in single-color (black) and corporate-color(s) versions, with no live font data, that has been test-scaled to very small and very large sizes; ensuring it will work at postage-stamp size and on the side of a truck or building, with specific spot color(s) and proportions that will enable it to be offset printed, embroidered and screen-printed on apparel, and cut into signage materials and decals.

  • What are the best practice for CQ5.5 configuration?

    What are the best practice for CQ5.5 configuration which handle for High availability.
    Last time I had a issues on server when I was uploaded 2 GB of DAM and then after that the server is not able to start and always getting error regarding Tar Persistance.
    So kindly request you to please let me know what are the best apache felix configuration.
    Thanks in advance...

    A DAM upload, regardless of the size of the assets, never should result in TarPM problems, unless you run into an OOM, which left the repository in an unclean state. So if you regularly do DAM uploads of that size, you should check the Garbage Collection logs and probably adjust the heapsize if necessary. You might want to limit the number of concurrent running workflows to keep the memory consumption a bit lower.
    To your question: HA in a traditional sense you cannot achieve with a single box, even with optimized settings. In an author usecase you would need clustering.

  • What are the best practices for the RCU's schemas

    I was wondering if there is some best practices about the RCU's schemas created with BIEE.
    I already have discoverer (and application server), so I have a metadata repository for the Application Server. I will upgrade Discoverer 10g to 11, so I will create new schema with RCU in my metada repository (MR) of the Application Server. I'm wondering if I can put the BIEE's RCU schemas in the same database.
    1. is there a standard for the PREFIX ?
    2. If I have multiple components of Fusion in the same Database, I will have multiples PREFIX_MDS schema ? Can they have the same PREFIX ? Or They all need to have a different prefix ?
    For exemple: DISCO_MDS and BIEE_MDS or I can have DEV_MDS and this schema is valid for both Discoverer and BIEE.
    Thank you !

  • What are the best practice to design Dashboard?

    Hi Friends,
    What are the best practice to design Dashboard?

    1) Use section name instead of Title View to name your report. This way sections can be collapsed and user can still see report name.
    2) Enable alternate coloring in tables and pivots for easy readablity and set table and pivot widths to 100% (for reports in dashboards) to reduce white space and achieve a more "professional look."
    3) Use column selectors and view selectors to reduce the width of reports and reduce the amount of columns user sees to a "practical minimum."

    Kappy's Personal Suggestions for OS X Maintenance
    For disk repairs use Disk Utility.  For situations DU cannot handle the best third-party utilities are: Disk Warrior;  DW only fixes problems with the disk directory, but most disk problems are caused by directory corruption; Disk Warrior 4.x is now Intel Mac compatible. Drive Genius provides additional tools not found in Disk Warrior.  Versions 1.5.1 and later are Intel Mac compatible.
    OS X performs certain maintenance functions that are scheduled to occur on a daily, weekly, or monthly period. The maintenance scripts run in the early AM only if the computer is turned on 24/7 (no sleep.) If this isn't the case, then an excellent solution is to download and install a shareware utility such as Macaroni, JAW PseudoAnacron, or Anacron that will automate the maintenance activity regardless of whether the computer is turned off or asleep.  Dependence upon third-party utilities to run the periodic maintenance scripts was significantly reduced since Tiger.  These utilities have limited or no functionality with Snow Leopard or Lion and should not be installed.
    OS X automatically defragments files less than 20 MBs in size, so unless you have a disk full of very large files there's little need for defragmenting the hard drive. As for virus protection there are few if any such animals affecting OS X. You can protect the computer easily using the freeware Open Source virus protection software ClamXAV. Personally I would avoid most commercial anti-virus software because of their potential for causing problems. For more about malware see Macintosh Virus Guide.
    I would also recommend downloading a utility such as TinkerTool System, OnyX 2.4.3, or Cocktail 5.1.1 that you can use for periodic maintenance such as removing old log files and archives, clearing caches, etc.
    For emergency repairs install the freeware utility Applejack.  If you cannot start up in OS X, you may be able to start in single-user mode from which you can run Applejack to do a whole set of repair and maintenance routines from the command line.  Note that AppleJack 1.5 is required for Leopard. AppleJack 1.6 is compatible with Snow Leopard. There is no confirmation that this version also works with Lion.
    When you install any new system software or updates be sure to repair the hard drive and permissions beforehand. I also recommend booting into safe mode before doing system software updates.
    Get an external Firewire drive at least equal in size to the internal hard drive and make (and maintain) a bootable clone/backup. You can make a bootable clone using the Restore option of Disk Utility. You can also make and maintain clones with good backup software. My personal recommendations are (order is not significant):
    Carbon Copy Cloner
    Data Backup
    Deja Vu
    Synk Pro
    Synk Standard
    Visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQs on maintenance, optimization, virus protection, and backup and restore.
    Additional suggestions will be found in Mac Maintenance Quick Assist.
    Referenced software can be found at CNet Downloads or MacUpdate.
    Be sure you have an adequate amount of RAM installed for the number of applications you run concurrently. Be sure you leave a minimum of 10% of the hard drive's capacity as free space.

  • What are the best practices to create surrounding borders?

    Good day everyone,
    I was wondering what is the best practices to create a look in my iOS app like the one below? How are they accomplishing the creation of the borders, is there a tool in Xcode IB to do that?
    Thank you in advance

    Once again thanks for your input, however I am still not clear how you have accomplish the rounded corners, you do not mention that in your reply.
    I did some research on my end and I was able to accomplish what I want with a UIView using the code below in an outlet:
    redView.layer.cornerRadius = 10;
    redView.layer.borderColor = [UIColor greenColor].CGColor;
    redView.layer.borderWidth = 5;
    However, I cannot do the same for the UITableView or UITableView cell.

  • What are the best external backup battery choices for the iPod Touch 4G?

    I am so disappointed with the battery life on my iPod Touch 4G, even when I turn off location services and notifications and put it in airplane mode. 
    As such, I realize that I am going to have to get an external backup battery, even though I don't like the idea of carrying around yet another item. 
    What are the best choices out there, especially any ultra-portable (aka small and non-bulky) ones?  I came across this Juice Pack Air - iPod Touch 4G Case, which seems like the perfect solution, but it is on back order and seems to have been so for a good amount of time.  Who knows when it will be in stock again.
    TIA for any and all help!

    Thank you!

    I am specificaly looking for best practices invloving the managment and performance tuning.
    Example: are their tools that I can install that will monitor the size and response time of the database and alert me if there is degradation in performance?
    Are there specific periodic activities I should be doing to garuntee that my database will continue to function that way it is supposed to?
    Or is this a fire and forget solution that does not need this attention?
