d) You must install the ST-PI add on software to allow transactional auditing.

ANSWER: A

Transaction sm19 allows criteria for filtering your audit of transactional information by users and transactions. This does impose overhead on your system. The audit log location is also defined in this transaction and can be read and monitored in transaction sm20.
