Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If your analysis can be done by checking only 1 or 2 programs, you could add a log file to those programs. If you are need to get information from any source, Tom’s sugguestion would be the only way.

    The function is not handled by journaling -- your journal space would increase dramatically whenever a query was run over your file, and possibly other issues would arise. Instead, you should create a read-only trigger. This is an external trigger type, allowing you to include logic that only makes a record for types of jobs that you need to track. -- Tom

    Even for one or two programs, I would use a trigger. The trigger would check if the needed programs were invoking it and only log for those programs. That avoids changing existing programs and makes it easier to add more logging if other programs are involved in the future. -- Tom
