Auditing Performance Issues

Impact of Auditing on Other Facilities

Enabling auditing on a project increases the time taken for most actions. For most modeling tasks, this increase is insignificant; however, there are some situations where the difference is more substantial.

Large Deletions

Deleting large packages or package structures, or large numbers of elements, takes significantly longer with auditing on. You might disable auditing before performing such a deletion.

XMI Imports

Importing XMI takes longer with auditing enabled. A project-level option is provided for disabling auditing of XMI Imports.

Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering code takes longer with auditing enabled. A project-level option is provided for disabling auditing of reverse engineering.

Replication

You cannot remove replication from a model with Auditing enabled. If you need to remove replication, disable Auditing and - if prompted to do so - allow Enterprise Architect to roll back the database version. You can then remove replication.
