Enabling auditing has performance implications, but site expert Jonathan Hassell says unless your hardware is more than five years old or you have an unusually busy server, you won't even notice it.

By enabling auditing on a File⪻int server, what does it give you? Is there a performance implication when you enable it?

There is a slight performance hit by enabling auditing, but unless your hardware is more than five years old or you have an unusually busy server, I doubt you'll notice it.
