Aggregate space considerations when enabling auditing

When an auditing configuration is created and auditing is enabled on at least one storage virtual machine (SVM) in the cluster, the auditing subsystem creates staging volumes on all existing aggregates and on all new aggregates that are created. You need to be aware of certain aggregate space considerations when you enable auditing on the cluster.

Staging volume creation might fail due to non-availability of space in an aggregate. This might happen if you create an auditing configuration and existing aggregates do not have enough space to contain the staging volume.

You should ensure that there is enough space on existing aggregates for the staging volumes before enabling auditing on an SVM.
