Provide updated and more detailed documentation of Cognos BI Audit Log tables and columns

Our client has a specific need to track what end users are receiving emailed report results generated out of Cognos. One way to identify these individuals appears to be by querying the email lists that are logged in the Audit Log database “AGENTRUN” table. Unfortunately, there is very little substantive documentation about what is considered an agent and what information is represented in the associated table and columns. The closest we came to finding this type of information was in the “SMM - IBM Cognos 8.4 Auditing.pdf” document. It is a good example of the type of documentation we are looking. Specifically Section 3.9 starts to address the “AgentRun” table but only covers the one example “scenario depicts an agent being run interactively”.

The enhancement request is to provide a document that more clearly describes the Audit Log tables and how they are related.
Please refer to PMR 86099,130,846 for examples of detailed questions regarding AGENTRUN that we would hope to have addressed.
