Recorded audit events are first queued in a local database on each agent computer. Events are then batched and forwarded to a coordinator. The coordinator checks for new events every 10 seconds and does a bulk insert of the event details to the SQL database.

Change Auditor clients do not connect directly to the SQL database. Instead, the coordinator to which the client is connected processes search results and change requests. Clients can connect to any coordinator if the logged on user is a member of either the ChangeAuditor Administrators — <InstallationName> or the ChangeAuditor Operators — <InstallationName> group in the respective forest.
