Are you using the stig.rules from the audit package or something else? If I 
were you, I'd spend some time making sure your rules are tuned. Assuming that 
you have keys on you rules, you can run a key report to see what is causing 
you the most events: aureport --start this-week --key --summary. 

Then you'd want to dig into some of those records and see what kinds of things 
are happening. Assuming you have a key of delete and you wanted to see what 
syscalls are the most often logged:

ausearch --start this-week -k delete --raw | aureport --syscall --summary -i

Assuming that shows unlinkat the most prevalent syscall:

ausearch --start this-week -k delete -sc unlinkat --raw | 
aureport --user --summary -i

And so on until you see what is causing so much logging. This doesn't help 
with the archiving, but could help you get the right audit data recorded.
