Since at Active Directory there are many of the events in built which are needed to be revised on a daily basis. If the auditing is enabling then only it will appear. Like security logs if its not enable then you wont be able to get the user and its security information.

For instance like if we create a user and then after few days time we delete the user, then its the ad auditor who lets us know what we did and created.

Moreover there are many of the events which we need to calculate. Then at that moment its compulsory to enable the auditing logs.

The link recommended by ali is recommendable and moreover you can refer this link also.
