    In c2 audit mode option the trace file size will go up to 200 mb. Is it a configurable one. i.e whether we can configure it to 10 mb . because our db size is 20 gb.

    can be done or not?

    It appears that this article was written quite some time ago... but, boy, is it sweet. I haven't tried it yet but Dinesh sure did make it easy.

    You can just bet I'm going to try it...

    Thanks, Dinesh! 5 stars!

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.

    how can the C2 audit trace output files be redirected to another location (drives and folders) other than the default instance location?

    I read your documentation clearly. I dont find any configuration to limit the size of the audit trace from 200 mb to 20mb or anything . And also there is no way in creating the file to different location other than mssql\data folder.

    I just need to know whether it can be enabled by any option like writing SP or triggers.
