You can use the BEGIN LOGGING statement to start access logging. BEGIN LOGGING statements have the following results:
  • Each BEGIN LOGGING statement creates a logging rule, in the form of an entry in the DBC.AccLogRule table.
  • Each time a user request matches one of the logging rules found in the DBC.AccLogRuleTbl, the macro creates an entry in the DBC.AccLogTbl.

Basic Syntax

BEGIN LOGGING ON [ frequency ] [ operation ] BY username ON object_name ;

Syntax Elements

frequency
Frequency with which logging of an event takes place during a session: FIRST, LAST, FIRST AND LAST, or EACH.
operation
Action or list of actions which, if present in a user request, triggers logging.
username
Name of the user (or users) for which the system logs requests.
object_name
Name of a database object which, if present in a user request, triggers logging.
BEGIN LOGGING parameters are optional. The absence of some parameters causes the system to use default values.
