Background Information
Auditing is the process of automatically recording selected actions, including actions of the authentication and authorization systems.

See Auditing in the Security Administration Guide.

The special variable $SYSTEM is bound to the %SYSTEM package. This means that instead of ##class(%SYSTEM.class).method(), you can use $SYSTEM.class.method().
