AAA command accounting logs the commands the user enters and the AAA server
can save those with the username and a timestamp.  those logs can be

multiple changes may occur between diffs and only the end result will be

It'd seem that command accounting alone, or just exec start/stop accounting,
would be sufficient to point fingers.
