You could also consider journaling those files of interest. A bit of an
overhead but may be worth it if it is important.

I agree with Geoff. Added to that is the fact that many of the S21 files
have no audit e.g. INP15.

You might also want to contemplate the use of database triggers to
ensure you capture all the information required.

A typical audit file is only ever going to be as useful as all of the
programs that write / update it. As soon as someone performs a write
or an update to the master file without including the audit file, then
the audit trail is compromised.

We have found that installing database triggers will ensure you
capture all database I/O's including SQL / DFU style updates, as the
I/O is performed at the operating system level and not within the program.
