Hi, Damian. External log interest me too. I have 2 questions:
1. How can you know about someone made a Select statement from 3rd
party tool?
2. What if data changing actions logged by your SP/UDF (I thought
about trigger/UDF) will be rolled back?

When I asked it some time ago in IBDI group I got recommendation to
use events for external logging, but it seems much overhead - I
could'nt find a way to force event carry information about what record
and columns was changed, only table and performed action.

Best regards.
