Understanding system events

SQL Anywhere tracks several system events. Each system event provides a hook on which you can hang a set of actions. The database server tracks the events for you, and executes the actions (as defined in the event handler) when the system event satisfies a provided trigger condition.

By defining event handlers to execute when a chosen system event occurs and satisfies a trigger condition that you define, you can improve the security and safety of your data, and help ease administration. The actions of an event handler are committed if no error is detected during execution, and rolled back if errors are detected.

The available system events include the following:
