SQL Server 2008 Audit of all Administrator Activity

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Hi Everyone,

I have been asked to audit of all administrator users activities on an SQL Server 2008 database. This audit will be performed once a week on a set time. What is the best and easiest way to accomplish this?

Should I use SQL Tracing or SQL Server Audit ? and do either have a large impact on the performance of the DB?

Thanks in advance,
