Sybase IQ how to log personalized Users?

Dear all,

we are currently using sybase iq version 16SP03.
Recently someone who's regarded as an expert for databases told me that there is no technical possibility to
enable a personalized logging for the database nor enable the audit logging on sybase iq for personalized accounts.
That sounds very strange since sybase iq is widely used in enterprise environments which are definitively oblidged to
ensure accountability to their system owners.

Could you please tell me how to enable personalized logging/ personalized audit logging for sybase iq
in simple steps, so that i can discuss that with the *database expert*?

Thank you.

    Auditing generally audits *writes*, yes? And users won't be making writes in a data warehouse. I think that's the thinking here.

    I've just had a close scan through all the IQ 16 manuals and they are definitely silent on auditing.

    What would you want to audit?
