Auditor Components

Auditor uses several databases to identify the design elements you want to find, as described in the following table:

Database Description
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.
