Hi
you simply use the DSPAUDJRNE command.
When you run any process it has an affect on performance but using this command it is not a great overhead.

Yes, there is a performance impact from turning on auditing.  Whenever you activate any sort of logging to disk in any system, there is a performance impact, and auditing information is logged to journal receiver objects on disk.  these journal receivers need to be managed to avoid excessive disk space consumption.

Here are two short articles about auditing:

Security auditing is covered in detail in Chapter 9 of the V5R3 Security Reference manual:
