System Audit Query
You use this program to view a log of changes or events that occurred in SYSPRO and which affect system security.
SYSPRO creates these logs automatically, the purpose being to assist system administrators to manage system security more effectively.
The transaction logs can be printed and they can be purged using the System Audit Purge program.
The Job Logging Query program maintains a log file of all programs that have been accessed by operators and can be used together with the System Audit Query to more effectively manage system security.

SQL Blocking Details
This displays a list of blocking/blocked SQL Sessions.
These SQL Sessions can only be killed on the SQL server. All the panes are refreshed after a process is killed.
A single process will never be displayed in the SQL Session pane. Details are only displayed when there is at least one blocking process and one blocked process. So if you kill only one process when two are displayed, then the list view will be empty on refresh.
An entry is created in Job Logging Query Job Logging when a process is killed.
Why are two audit log records saved per login?
SYSPRO's System Audit Query program inserts two records into the AdmSystemAuditLog, instead of one:
The first record is inserted when the user tabs off the Operator password field, as the password is validated in order to determine whether or not to enable the company browse.
The second record is inserted when the user selects the login button and the system performs the actual login routine.
In each of the above steps, an audit log check for the supervisor password is performed. If successful, two entries are created within the AdmSystemAuditLog.
Two records are inserted into the AdmSystemAuditLog when:
SYSPRO is launched from a shortcut, which has both the /OPER parameter and /PASS parameters defined (i.e. autorun parameters are supplied).
the /PASS parameter value is a supervisor password.
the operator account in question has a password defined against it.
