Customers can modify the $SPECROOT/SS/.vnmrc file to add the entry log_user_events and set it to true.  This resource is documented in the Defining Spectrum Resources guide as follows:


      Description: The log_user_events resource controls whether the VNM generates an event for every database or external write to  the VNM.

      Syntax: log_user_events=False


      False is the default value and causes the VNM not to generate events. A value of True causes the VNM to generate events.


 It should be noted, additional events will be generated and logged which could impact overall SPECTRUM performance.
