The Software_Event_Log view displays, by date and time, any events that have affected processing, such as a memory parity error, a disabling of logons, a Teradata Database restart, or execution of a PM/API SET command, along with an associated message. The processor is identified when appropriate.

The LogOnOff view, because it chronologically records all logon and logoff activity as well as the reasons for unsuccessful logons and logoffs, allows you to detect actual and attempted security violations. This view also lets you know how long any user is connected to the Teradata Database.
