Setting the SM_AUDIT_ALL_CONNECTIONS environment variable equal to 1 forces the logging even if the client does not request it. If you set SM_AUDIT_ALL_CONNECTIONS equal to 1, then you do not have to set SM_AUDIT_CLIENT_ACTIONS, described in “SM_AUDIT_CLIENT_ACTIONS” on page 146.

If you set SM_AUDIT_ALL_CONNECTIONS, you do not need to modify the client. However, if you suspect a specific client you might still want to use the by-request-only access provided by SM_AUDIT_CLIENT_ACTIONS to reduce the amount of logging coming from other sources.
