Auditor uses several databases to identify the design elements you want to find, as described in the following table:
|Filters (based on deanfltr.ntf)||Describes the criteria to use when auditing a design.|
|Analysis (for example, analysis.nsf)||Created by Analyzer when a design is analyzed.|
|Audit output (for example, auditreport.nsf)||Documents the instances of design elements selected by Auditor which match filters.|
When Auditor runs, it retrieves the filter(s) from the Filters database and scans the analysis file looking for design elements that match those filter(s). For each match, Auditor creates a document in the audit output database.
