Cost of Increased Processing Time of Audit Data

The cost of increased processing time is the least significant of the costs of auditing. Auditing generally does not occur during computation-intensive tasks, such as image processing, complex calculations, and so forth. Also, if you are using the audit_binfile plugin, audit administrators can move the post-selection tasks from the audited system to systems that are dedicated to analyzing audit data. Finally, unless kernel events are preselected, the audit service has no measurable impact on system performance.
