Db2® Big SQL leverages the auditing capabilities of Db2 to capture, audit, and monitor activity on a system, ranging from authentication requests against Db2 Big SQL to queries being executed on that system.

Audit can be enabled in native Db2 Big SQL. Db2 Big SQL audit performs all of its regular auditing tasks, which include generating audit records for access requests that are made against tables and views. This type of audit record is called a checking event.
