    We are looking for best practices regarding building an audit trail for administrator actions in the Gateway.
    Our implementation partner recommended not to write the audit events to the Audit Log database in the Production environmet, because of the large number of events and a corresponding performance penalty.
    But what is the recommended way to collect the admin audit events?

    The performance is impacted when there is a large number of audits written to the database. This is typically a result of setting message and detail audits to too low of a level. If you set message and detail audits to "severe" and admin audits to "Info", then only your admin audits will be written.
