Auditing table access in SAS 9.4


About the webinar

A question SAS administrators often get asked is what is the usage of our tables?

This can be :

  • To work out which tables to retire to recover storage space
  • To enable auditing as part of due diligence
  • To satisfy a GDPR requirement

The SAS logging framework tracks every time a table is touched, whether it's through code or simply opening it for browsing in a SAS client. Find out how easy it is to set this up in SAS 9.4

What you will learn:

  • The basics of the SAS logging facility
  • How to set up logging on a SAS workspace server
  • How to turn the logs into base SAS tables
  • How to produce usage reports
