Disable: 'Audit: Audit the access of global system objects' for AuditBaseObjects
This policy setting creates a default system access control list (SACL) for system objects such as mutexes (mutual exclusive), events, semaphores, and MS-DOS devices, and causes access to these system objects to be audited.
If the Audit: Audit the access of global system objects setting is enabled, a very large number of security events could quickly fill the Security event log.
Enable the Audit: Audit the access of global system objects setting.
If you enable the Audit: Audit the access of global system objects setting, a large number of security events could be generated, especially on busy domain controllers and application servers. Such an occurrence could cause servers to respond slowly and force the Security log to record numerous events of little significance. This policy setting can only be enabled or disabled, and there is no way to choose which events are recorded. Even organizations that have the resources to analyze events that are generated by this policy setting would not likely have the source code or a description of what each named object is used for. Therefore, it is unlikely that many organizations could benefit by enabling this policy setting.
