Auditing Vs Performance

    Hi all. I recently became suspicious that some users on my network are
    misuse of the files on the server. Therefore I enabled audditing for both
    successfull and failed attempts. This made the secutiy log large enough and
    created a performance overhead. In fact the backup routine done in the night
    did not complete in the required time and I had to terminate it and remove
    auditing to be able to complete.

    My question is there a way to enable auditing and at the same time
    not create a performance bottleneck? so that backup could complete? or which
    auditing entries are the most essential?

    I'm no expert on auditing, however, it would appear that you might have
    turned on auditing for too many different events. What, precisely, do you
    think it is your users are doing, and what gave rise to your suspicions?
