Data ONTAP enables you to control auditing of APIs based on their roles. If an API is used only for retrieving information and not for modifying the state of the system, the read-only API is not audited by default.
You use the auditlog.readonly_api.enable option to enable or disable read-only API auditing. The default value of the auditlog.readonly_api.enable option is off. It is recommended that you leave this option disabled, because auditing read-only APIs may inundate the audit log.
The default is off.
