The ability to audit access to an Rdb database is provided through the use of the RMU Audit utility.  There are four levels or classes that can be audited through the use of this utility.  Only the discretionary access class (DACCESS) is discussed here.  Discretionary Access is used to track who issues SQL and RMU commands and is typically the most popular level to audit within a database.  The discussion that follows provides examples on how to audit events for an Rdb table and a specific user, as well as options for analyzing results.
