I have heard from a couple of customers recently asking about BPM audit table growth, specifically BPM_AUDIT_QUERY. It led me to investigate the impact of the various audit levels in SOA/BPM on these table and to propose options to them.

It is important to note up-front that BPM is a human-centric workflow application and therefore should be expected to audit often and in detail the reality is that business users probably will want to know who did what and when, and also who did not do what when they were supposed to.

The “downside” of this is that audit tables can grow at a faster rate than expected, and BPM_AUDIT_QUERY is normally the most prominent of these.
