Rawat -

 

The impact of auditing isn't that high.

It does depend on how much auditing you turn.

File access logging will be a bit more load.

 

cifs.audit.saveas specifies the location for the log files:

cifs.audit.saveas
Specifies the active event log file. The file must be in an existing directory in a network share.

 

You may wish to look at all of the cifs.audit option definitions before turning on auditing.

They're all documented in the 'options' man page:

I hope this response has been helpful to you.
