Controlling Auditing Costs

    Because auditing consumes system resources, you must control the degree of detail that is recorded. When you decide what to audit, consider the following costs of auditing:

  • Cost of increased processing time

  • Cost of analysis of audit data

If you are using the default plugin, audit_binfile, you must also consider the storage cost of audit data.
